Encampment will be action packed and fun. Cadets can hone up on leadership skills and learn new aspects of the CAP experience. We will be offering a first-year Student course and an Advanced course for those that have attended a previous year’s encampment and still want to challenge themselves through advanced training.
Good morning, we hope all is well after the big storm last night. The cadets are all safe and still fast asleep. I want to take this time to announce our plan for graduation.
Parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend the festivities. On Saturday, starting around 1500, (3pm), our barracks will be ready for inspection. Come see how your cadet has kept their bed made and how organized their closet is. Then, around 1800, (6pm), we will start our promotion/graduation ceremony. We have several awards to pass out, to include certificates of first flight and cadet promotions. As of now, we have at least 2 cadets being promoted from the cadet enlisted ranks to the cadet officer corps. Then, we will celebrate all of our accomplishments by enjoying a nice meal prepared by our outstanding USAF Services team.
To access the base, make sure you tell the gate guard that you are here for Civil Air Patrol. We have given the security team a list of all attendees with addresses. As long as you have a photo ID with the address that matches the entry list, you should have no problem getting on base. Please e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns.
I have had an incredible time working with the cadets this year, I know they are all looking forward to this celebration too.
In order to offset the costs, we are asking that anyone attending just the graduation write a check for $20 per adult made payable to North Dakota Wing.

This morning the cadets started off with physical training and had the opportunity to ride in a black hawk. #CAPCadet
