Encampment is an immersion into the "full challenges and opportunities of cadet life" and an intensive environment that moves cadets beyond their normal comfort zones for personal growth. The purpose of the cadet encampment is for cadets to develop leadership skills, investigate the aerospace sciences and related careers, commit to a habit of regular exercise, and solidify their moral character. Rhode Island wing holds an encampment annually, typically in the spring.

Cadets or parents should contact their squadron commander with further questions regarding CEAP. While is no income cutoff to be eligible for CEAP, please note that the program is intended for cadets with a legitimate financial need.
