2023 Nevada Wing Summer Encampment


Get ready to launch yourself into of the most challenging, exciting and rewarding weeks of your life!  There are CAP encampments, and then there is the Nevada Wing Silver's Edge Encampment – and there is a reason our experience is second to none.


Our Encampment will cover Aerospace Education, Leadership, Character Development, Physical Fitness and Drill and Ceremonies in fantastic ways that make them come alive and will make you excited to explore them further when you return to your home units. As an added bonus, when you graduate from the Nevada Training Corps, you will absolutely want to staff future encampments.

What you learn as young leaders in Civil Air Patrol will set you well above your peers for military academies, the bests schools, ROTC, the corporate world, and everywhere that leaders are needed. YOU will be future Presidents, members of Congress, CEOs, generals, doctors, pilots, lawyers and highly productive workers in the workforce. YOU are going to make America in your image! On top of all of this, you are going to have a ton of fun!

 All cadets will be able to participate in a firearms course taught by NRA-certified instructors. Cadets will have the opportunity to earn their NRA marksmanship badges to wear on their uniforms.

Cadets are highly encouraged to apply for Cadet Encampment Assistance Program scholarships which will cover the cost of attending Encampment. See the registration page for scholarship application procedures.
