Future Openings

The experience of staffing an Encampment is the reason many CAP members keep coming back.  It's an opportunity to work alongside the best and brightest of our Cadet Program, and simultaneously an opportunity to practice your own leadership.  Whether you're a flight sergeant, a PAO, or a Training Officer, Encampment staff has a place for you.

Future Cadet Line Cadre

Cadet Line Cadre directly interact with Cadet Students, teaching and mentoring them in their flights.  All Cadet Line Cadre position have been posted or have closed.

Future Cadet Support Staff

Encampment couldn't survive without support cadre supporting the Cadet Students and Cadet Line Cadre.  All Cadet Support Cadre position have been posted or have closed.

Future Senior Members

Senior member volunteer time during Encampment is always appreciated.  As always, to work with cadets you have to have completed Cadet Protection training. The following positions will be opening in the near future:

  • Training Officer
    • Each cadet flight needs a Training Officer. The training officer shadows an Encampment flight, provides an understanding ear for first year students (away from their flight staff), and watches for the safety and well being of the flight.  If you are interested in applying, contact the Commandant of Cadets.  
  • Senior Support
    • If Training Officer doesn't sound interesting to you, or you don't meet the requirements, there are many other Senior Member positions at Encampment.  We are always looking for assistants in many of the roles.  If you have an area you're interested in, or even if you just know that you'd like to volunteer, contact the Deputy Commander to apply.
