Tennessee Wing Encampment 2019

23 May

If you have not received a supplemental encampment packet, and an invoice via email, contact Lt. Myers immediately. It means we have a bad address for you. Payment and forms are due in a week! (Lt Tom Myers, 256694@tncap.us)


Encampment supplemental forms packet goes out this week. Please have your parents read carefully and fill out. We do have a wait list so some applicants will be on stand-by until we get payments in. If you do not get a forms packet this week (and you have applied) please contact Lt Myers at 256694@tncap.us. Some of your handwriting is difficult to decipher so we may have a bad email for you.   You may also download the supplemental forms at the bottom of this page.


Thanks to all who applied to the 2019 TNWG Encampment.  At this time we are at maximum capacity for cadets, though we will still accept CAPF31s to be placed on a waiting list if additional slots come available.  In the coming days we will be sending out via email information regarding payment and attendance, as well as additional required paperwork.  Make sure to check the email address that was listed on your CAPF31, as that is the address we will be using for communication.

Feel free to contact us if you do not receive information by next Friday (10 May) about additional paperwork.  You may be on the waiting list if that is the case.

Selection Day Results

The results from staff selection day are complete and the selectees are being notified.  Thank you to all who participated and were willing to work to make the encampment a success this year.   For those who made it... Congratulations!...now the fun begins.


Applications for 2019 TN Wing Encampment will be accepted starting March 1 and continuing through May 1st.


Encampment dates are 7 July - 13 July
The encampment costs $150.00 for cadets/$75.00 for senior members.

--Fill out a form 31 (can be downloaded from the encampment website or national HQ CAP). Have it signed by your parents and squadron commander. You do not need a group commander's signature up front. We will send a list for their redline approval afterward. Out of state applicants need their wing commander's signature as well.
Scan the fully signed form and email it to:

1Lt Tom Myers at 256694@tncap.us

--Once you have a slot confirmed, you will be sent additional forms and be asked to make payment. (And provided a packing list)
--Priority is given to first time students and necessary staff personnel. (Bed count is limited to 140) After that, ATF cadets and returning students are accepted.
--If you are a returning student and are interested in attending Advanced Training Flight if you do not get a staff position, please write ATF or Staff at the top of your form 31.


--Do not mail or fax a paper form to wing headquarters.
--Do NOT send payment at this time.
--If you do not have access to a scanner, you may take pictures of the forms and attach to your email.
--Please write neatly if you hand print your form. It is hard to make out poor handwriting and it causes rejections for email, etc.
--If you need financial assistance, you can apply for the Cadet Encampment Assistance Program. Information available here: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/…/encampment/ceap-applicat…

We had 45 people sign up to compete for staff slots. That's 45 people who have volunteered to take on extra work, extra preparation and extra responsibility to make our encampment the best possible training experience for first time cadets. Thank you, and good luck to you all at try-out day.

FOR THOSE THAT APPLIED...staff selection day will be held at MTSU on March 9. More information will follow as we determine which building to meet at. If you are unable (due to prior commitment or distance) to attend, a skype interview and documentation from your commander will be used, but your best chance to show your capabilities will obviously be on March 9.
