Cadet Encampment Financial Assistance Program

Money is available to send you to encampment. Please go get your parent or guardian now and read through this announcement together. 

Thanks to Air Force support, CAP has special funding available this year to cover encampment fees, uniforms, transportation, and other costs associated with our encampment program, with an emphasis on serving economically disadvantaged cadets. This is great news and evidence of the Air Force’s pride in your accomplishments and enthusiasm for your future. In short, if you want to attend an encampment this summer, don’t let an inability to afford it hold you back.

Eligibility. Assistance is available only to first-time encampment attendees. We can even refund fees you’ve already paid for encampment, if your family has a financial need and you meet any of the criteria explained below.

Deadline. Hurry. Funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Application Process. With a parent or senior member, log-in to eServices at www.capnhq.gov. Click “Cadet Encampment Assistance Program,” and answer the questions posed.
