Joining Civil Air Patrol (CAP) as a Cadet is easy! In addition to meeting the requirements below, come and join us during one of our regular Monday evening meetings and learn about CAP. All meeting dates and time are posted on the main page of the website, but usually Mondays at Meadowlake Airport from 6pm -8:30pm. Prospective members need only wear their school clothes and attend 3 meetings. After the 3rd meeting, we will work to get your uniforms issued, along with CAP enrollment ($41.00 annual fee), and leadership and aerospace books will be issued after formally signing up with CAP through the CAP national website. To join, contact the squadron via call and/or email to our CAP Senior Member Squadron Commander (1st Lt Greg Schmitz) and Cadet Squadron Commander (C/2nd Lt Anna Conkling) to confirm the meeting date, time and location. Don’t be afraid to ask questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there!
