2024 Georgia Wing Encampment

The 2024 Georgia Wing Encampment is a week-long activity that serves to build a foundation for the cadets from which to build their Civil Air Patrol (CAP) experience. These week-long events provide in-depth orientation to Civil Air Patrol and the United States Air Force. First-time cadets can expect to be mentally and physically challenged during a busy, exciting week of hands-on leadership development training and aerospace events. Cadets returning as staff will be challenged even further through the leadership roles they will fill and the staff duties they will perform. All cadets will have the opportunity to be introduced to the military, learn to overcome challenges, develop time-management skills, enhance their interpersonal skills and have a great time.

REGISTRATION AND REFUNDS

Registration for the 2024 Georgia Wing Encampment will open late-March and will use the new Registration Zone module in eServices. Check back on this page for updates.

To be eligible to attend the encampment as a first-time student, cadets must have completed the Curry Achievement and have been promoted to Cadet Airman (C/Amn) before the encampment begins.

Any member failing to provide fee payment by the deadline may forfeit their encampment slot. Extensions to the payment deadline may be granted by the encampment commander for extenuating circumstances. These requests must be sent directly to the encampment commander for approval.

PREPARATION

All encampment participants will experience long, demanding and very active days. Cadets can expect to be active about 16 hours a day. To be successful at encampment, prior preparation is critical. Arrive at encampment with the correct equipment, well-rested and hydrated. Proper hydration will help prevent many common encampment injuries and serve to keep you healthy during a demanding week. Cadets should study available encampment materials prior to encampment so that the information is fresh and does not result in cramming.

TRANSPORTATION

Transportation to and from the activity is not the responsibility of CAP. Details for arrival and check-in will be provided closer to the encampment start date.

Privately-Owned Vehicles

Cadets who drive to encampment must turn in their vehicle keys upon arrival.

Carpooling

Carpooling is encouraged, but the encampment staff cannot assist in this coordination. It's recommended to ask within your squadron.
