9.1.1. Mission. 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 reinforce their moral character.

9.1.2. Vision. The vision for the cadet encampment is “an immersion into the full challenges and opportunities of cadet life.”

Cadets are encouraged to attend Encampment either as Students (Basic - First-Time attendee or Advanced - already attended but not Cadet Cadre) or Cadet Cadre.
