Texas Wing Encampments have the reputation for excellence. This legacy is only as strong as the cadets that have the strength and talent to lead. Do you have what it takes?
Let nothing discourage you from applying to this encampment. All applications will be considered and given equal opportunity. Keep an open mind when applying because there is a chance that the position you apply for will not be what you are given. Keep also in mind that there is no horrible job. Every position is needed to make an encampment run and is extremely important, especially the support positions. If you are chosen as staff I only ask a few things of you. One, pay attention and adhere to the safety briefing and regulations set by the Encampment Commander and the Senior members in charge of the encampment. Two, remain professional at all times. And three, do your very best. Excellence does not mean give 125%, it means give your best at all times even if it is not perfect. We can work with someone who is not perfect but gives it their all.
