THE 2022 OKLAHOMA WING SUMMER ENCAMPMENT HAS CONCLUDED

Civil Air Patrol Summer encampments serve as leadership laboratories. They offer cadets the opportunity to further develop leadership skills under the careful supervision of highly trained adult leaders. Additionally, cadets are offered the opportunity to explore the aerospace sciences and related careers, commit to a habit of regular exercise and solidify their moral character.

 

When you attend a Civil Air Patrol encampment, you begin the most challenging and rewarding journey of your cadet career: becoming a leader. Encampment challenges you. It pushes you so you’ll grow. Are you self-disciplined? Can you lead? Can you truly work as a team? These are some of the questions the cadre will help you answer for yourself as you participate in awesome, hands-on activities and tours.

Col Aaron Oliver

Oklahoma Wing Commander

"Greetings All - I wanted to publicly thank everyone who made our Encampment a resounding success! Without our volunteers, we couldn't do what we do. Also, thanks to the parents who trusted us with their cadets this week. I know memories were made and hopefully, lasting friendships were forged.

To be a part of this amazing team of volunteers, reach out to us for more information."


Cadet Lt Col Bailey Lunsford

Cadet Commander

Riverside Composite Squadron
Jenks, OK

"From meeting new people to learning new things, every encampment I’ve been to has been an amazing experience for me. Personally, as Cadet Commander this year, this encampment was the culmination of everything I’ve learned in Civil Air Patrol over the last eight years. I was able to combine my strategic planning, communication, and mentorship skills together and put them into practice, as well as pass that knowledge on to my Cadet Staff and Students. 

This year, I had the incredible opportunity to watch 81 students and 37 cadet staff develop their character, resilience, discipline, teamwork, and communication skills through every challenge they faced. Their willingness to learn, ability to adapt to change, commitment to excellence throughout the week, and courage and determination on the toughest obstacles at the O-Course inspire me. It was an honor to have a part in developing the next generation of Civil Air Patrol Cadet leaders."


Cadet Maj Benjamin Mullen

Cadet Deputy CDR of Operations

Towson Composite Squadron
Towson, MD

"The 2022 Oklahoma Wing Encampment was truly a premier cadet training activity. Eighty-one young people showed up ready to learn and left as members of a team, and junior leaders ready to bring the knowledge they gained back to their squadrons, and further their Civil Air Patrol Training. The hard work of all of the Cadre has made a real impact."


Cadet Col Joe Smith

Cadet Deputy CDR of Support

Sulphur Springs Composite Squadron
Sulphur Springs, TX

"Through collective team synchronization, this encampment brought about a true leadership laboratory. In conjunction with the FSNP philosophy, we arrived as a group of individuals and left as a team. This was more than a school, this was a life-enhancing experience."
