Goals of Encampments
Civil Air Patrol encampments are designed to provide CAP members an opportunity (1) to apply know/edge gained in the cadet and senior programs to practical situations, (2) to develop a greater understanding of the CAP mission and CAP capabilities, and (3) to develop their potential for aerospace leadership in an actual aerospace environment. Furthermore, it has been found that a cadet's first encampment has a significant impact upon subsequent interest and desire to remain in the program. Thus, retention and motivation can be considered as additional purposes of encampments. You have been attending a (Type A" Encampment. These are conducted under CAP supervision with Air Force advice, assistance, and cooperetion and they enable cadets to live in the environment of an active installation. They are conducted at selected Air Force, Air Guard, or Air Force Reserve bases which have been requested by National Headquarters.

[ Cadet Training

I

Encampment can be the most significant and worthwhile training experience in a CAP cadet's career.
It i . the Hight Commander's job to train his night.

This training not only includes the required basic academic program, but also involves molding his night together with a sense f belonging and pride. Creating high mor Ie and esprit d corps is th goal. Tasks are often used to accom plish the overall goal of proving the value of the individual as a member of the team; thus rack making, rolling underwear, etc., which might seem mundane are actually teaching this
g ale

It is the Flight Staff which implements the training process and enforces the performance standards. It is their responsibility to ensure the appropriate examples are given in each situation and to ensure each cadet meets the standards. The ability of the cadets improve as the training process proce ds. Part of this process also include the motivation of the cadets. Care is taken to ensure that each member of the flight understands what is expected of him.
