Cadet Programs

Would you like to honor and serve America? Do you want to prepare for your future while making new friends? Then rise to the challenge of cadet membership in the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol.

Cadets fly, learn to lead, hike, camp, get in shape, and push themselves to new limits. If you’re dreaming about a career in aviation, space, or the military, CAP’s Cadet Program is for you.

To become a cadet, you must be be at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old.  Cadets meet 2 hours per week on Thursday nights and also have opportunities to attend weekend activities, leadership encampments, career academies, and other activities during the summer.

If this sounds like something you're interested in, stop by one of our meetings and check out our Join Information page. If you've already joined, make sure to look at the New Cadet Welcome.
