MN Wing Encampment
Cadets have the opportunity to spend a week of their summer at Fort Ripley where they learn leadership, teamwork, self-discipline and experience a variety of tours. These often include simulators, confidence course and helicopter flights.
The date for this program varies from year to year and is announced around November. Staff applications are due in December and registration is in May. This program is a prerequisite for other exciting Cadet programs! Cadets under age 14 are required to attend Encampment Preparatory School (EPS) which takes place in May/June.
See the Minnesota Wing Encampment for more details.
