Memorandum from the Encampment Commander


MEMORANDUM FOR PARENTS, GUARDIANS, AND LOVED ONES OF CADETS
FROM: 2022 SUMMER ENCAMPMENT COMMANDER
SUBJECT: Thank You and Update on Graduation

1. I would like to take an opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude for allowing us to train your cadets. This week your cadets have been challenged and have exceeded this staff’s highest expectations. As with any large activity we have not been without hardships. However, these cadets and seniors have overcome every challenge they have faced, overcoming the adversity, and formed into a cohesive training group.

2. As the Encampment Commander, I will never fully be able to articulate in words the pride I have in seeing these young men and women grow and demonstrate the core values of Civil Air Patrol. Throughout this week, I have seen these cadets demonstrate both direct and indirect leadership, they have supported each other, and developed skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

3. As we progress through the next 24 hours and we prepare for graduation, please know that you have every right to be proud and boastful about your cadets. It has been a profound honor for myself and my staff to have been given the privilege to serve in the growth and development of your cadets. Again, we will never be able to fully express our gratitude for allowing us the opportunity to spend this time with your cadets as they fully embody the meaning of Non Ducor, Duco (I am not led, I lead).

4. I look forward to seeing you all for Pass in Review and Graduation tomorrow at 10:00 AM.

Very Respectfully,

//SIGNED//

Update on Encampment 


All basic participants must arrive for check-in between 1300 and 1400 hours on Sunday, 19 June 2022. Basic cadets need to report in the blue uniform. Lunch will not be provided, and it is recommended the participants should eat lunch before they arrive. 


Greetings Parents,

First, I want to thank you for sending your cadet to this incredible opportunity at the Texas Wing Summer Encampment 2022.  Below you will find pertinent information regarding the encampment to make sure you have a good experience. It is our mission to ensure that our personnel are providing a learning environment that is second to none. 

Food:
We will be providing three Menus: General, Gluten Free, and Vegan.  This will ensure all personnel have >3000 calories a day.  Please Note, personnel are expected to eat what is served as we will not be providing picky eaters with alternative food items.  It is critical to the safety of personnel that they eat to replace the calories they have burned.  Cadets who don’t eat will be counseled by their Training Officer (TO); personnel who pass on a second meal will have their parents notified. If your cadet refuses to eat a third meal, they will be sent home. 

Behavior:
In order to provide a safe and productive training environment for all personnel, we will follow national guidance on behavior. As we are all here to learn; horseplay, aggressive behavior, fighting or bullying will not be tolerated as it is disruptive to the learning environment.  This activity will utilize the following procedure regarding behavior, redirection, parental notification, and finally dismissal from encampment. However, some behaviors such as fighting or bullying will not follow this chain and cadets may be dismissed from encampment upon the first offence. 

Over the Counter (OTC) and Prescription (Rx) Medications:
Cadets and personnel who are bringing Rx medications to this activity will need to have them in a bottle, labeled from their pharmacy, with the dosage, time, and number of doses. 

NOTE: PERSONNEL DO NOT NEED TO BRING THEIR ENTIRE RX, THEY ONLY NEED TO HAVE THE NUMBER OF DOSES NECESSARY FOR THE TIME THEY ARE AT THE ACTIVITY.  Example: if a member takes 1 pill a day, and they are attending for seven days, then they should ONLY bring seven pills. 

In compliance with NHQ/CAP Health Services; this activity will be adhering to the following procedures on all Rx medications. Cadets will be able to maintain emergency/rescue medications (i.e., inhalers/epi pens and OTC medications for allergies).   Additionally, cadets should not bring OTC pain medications or any supplements that were not listed on their medication forms.

Contraband:
All personnel will go through a contraband shakedown upon arrival.  Contraband will be secured and locked for the duration of the activity and will be given back at the end of the activity.  This includes but is not limited to: cellular devices, watches, food and snacks, knives, etc.  If it is not listed on the packing list, it should not be brough to encampment.  (See Packing List) 


Encampment has filled to capacity and applications are now closed. Flights will be updated and posted soon. Check back to see more information. Eventbrite is now closed. If you are a staff member or a basic that did not get CEAP, please contact Matt Parker at encampment@txwg.cap.gov to get access to pay via EventBrite. 



Update on Encampment Location


The encampment team has worked diligently to find a location comparable to Camp Bowie and are moving to Camp Maxey, Paris, Texas on the same dates, 19-26 June, 17-18 Staff Days. 


If you have any questions, please send them to encampment@txwg.cap.gov. 


Original Post


​Our 2022 Encampment Staff has worked diligently for the past 12 months planning the summer encampment.  They have investigated over 30 different sites, endless date options and some very creative thinking to ensure you an encampment worthy of Texas Wing, Unfortunately, the needs of the Texas Military Department take higher precedence than our training.  I am confident the team will try to find alternatives that meet our requirements and our expectations.


Please see the below notice from Major Jason Quick and the 2022 Encampment Executive Staff.

Greetings Texas Wing,

On Thursday, the 2022 Summer Encampment Staff performed a site visit at both Camp Bowie and Fort Wolters, as 19 March 2022 marked the required 90 day booking date when we were allowed to secure them.  While there, we were informed that the Texas military Department scheduled a medical readiness drill that impacted our primary location at Camp Bowie.  As a result, this not only displaced us, but, created shift in movement of Texas National Guard units, which impacted our secondary location at Fort Wolters.  in short, despite planning and building in redundances, we have been forced to shift our encampment to an alternative location.


While I know that may cause some concerns, I assure you we will be successful in executing.  I invite you all to an Encampment Townhall Virtual Meeting on Sunday, April 3rd, from 1800-2000 so that we may answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding this upcoming encampment.

We are currently working on alternative avenues to ensure a successful summer encampment, and will continue to work diligently towards this goal.  As we pointed out this evening, my name is at the top of the list and as such shoulder the responsibility.  It is my intent to focus the efforts of one of the best encampment staffs I have had the honor of working with to ensure Texas Wing Cadets are offered an exceptional opportunity.

Regards,

Major Jason Quick
