2016 Colorado Wing Cadet Encampment

The "Phantom" Encampment

C/Capt Chad Lewis of Mustang Cadet Squadron has been selected as Cadet Commander of the 2016 COWG Cadet Encampment.

One of the COWG Encampment traditions is that the new Cadet Commander gets to select an Air Force aircraft of current or historical significance as the "theme" aircraft for the encampment. C/Capt Lewis has selected the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II as the theme aircraft for the 2016 encampment.

The two-place, twinjet, all-weather F-4 Phantom II, with top speeds more than twice that of sound, was one of the most versatile fighters ever built. It served in the first line of more Western air forces than any other jet. The Phantom entered service in 1960 and has been used by the Air force, the Navy and the Marine Corps. The Phantom is the only aircraft to be flown by both the Air Force Thunderbirds AND the Navy Blue Angels. Production of the Phantom ended in 1979 after delivery of 5068 aircraft.

 Cadet Encampment Assistance Program (CEAP) Minimize
The application process for the Cadet Encampment Assistance Program (CEAP) is available!
 

The CEAP program provides a means for cadets to obtain financial assistance for encampment fees, uniforms for encampment, etc. This program gives priority to encampment student cadets (first time attendees).

The US Air Force funds CEAP and CAP National Headquarters Cadet Programs administers the CEAP program. The CEAP application process and the COWG Encampment application process are completely independent. You must apply for each program, separately, if you wish to attend encampment AND receive CEAP financial assistance.

The encampment application process will open later in March 2016. The CEAP application process is open now. If you plan to submit an application for COWG Encampment application and plan to request CEAP financial assistance, it is critical that you complete the CEAP application as soon as possible and before submitting the encampment application.  

CEAP applicants do not need to submit any fees with their COWG Encampment application. However, if an encampment applicant states that they have applied for CEAP assistance, encampment staff will confirm the CEAP assistance application before processing the encampment application.

CAP National Headquarters transfers CEAP funds directly to COWG to pay encampment fees. The funds do not go to the applicant.

Time is critical! CAP NHQ awards CEAP financial assistance on a first come - first served basis. COWG Encampment awards encampment slots on a first come - first served basis. If you plan to apply for CEAP, do it now! You will then be prepared to submit your encampment application when the application process begins later in March.

 What's in the Documents Above? Minimize

Why are the documents in the box above so important?

AFMAN 36-2203 Drill & Ceremonies is the US Air Force Drill "Bible". Everything you ever wanted to know about drill is in the manual. If you want to become a real expert, this is where you need to look! BE PATIENT - This is a large file and will be a slow download.

Learn-to-Lead Cadet Drill Guide is the very, very abbreviated CAP version of the Air Force Drill & Ceremonies Manual. This is probably all you will need to study prior to encampment.

Preparing for Encamment - Parents Guide is a lot of useful information for parents about encampment. This is "must read" for parents of a Basic Cadet (first time attendee) that is going to encampment.

Student Cadet Guide - Preparing for Encampment is a great document to help the cadet, who is a first time attendee, to prepare for encampment.

CAP Manual 39-1 CAP Uniform Manual is the complete reference to wearing the CAP uniforms. Everything that you will ever need to know about CAP uniforms is in this manual - if you can find it!

Grooming and Appearance in Uniform is information that is taken from CAPM 39-1 and provides a "one-stop-shopping" source that provides a cadet (and parents) with all of that important information about what kind of jewelry you can and cannot wear with the uniform, CAP's policy toward "body piercing", male and female grooming standards for haircuts, hairstyles, (don't show up with green hair) and makeup, etc. This is an important document. It should be reviewed by cadet applicants and parents, before encampment.

Encampment Grooming Standards Policy is the 2015 Encampment policy regarding personal grooming standards (such as haircuts and hairstyles).

CAP Pamphlet 151 - Respect on Display is the source for learning about CAP/Military Customs and Courtesies. This is a "must read"  for new cadets. This is your source for learning who to salute, when to salute, how to salute, and other important military traditions, customs, and courtesies. Be sure to study this before encampment.
