The 2023 Illinois Wing Summer Encampment will take place Saturday, 20 July 2023, through Saturday, 29 July 2023, at the Marseilles Training Center (MTC) near Marseilles, IL. The MTC is an Army National Guard facility. If you have not attended an Encampment previously, you should plan to attend Encampment this summer! Successful completion of a Civil Air Patrol Encampment is a prerequisite to earning the CAP General Billy Mitchell award. In addition to gaining useful leadership experience and in-depth knowledge of the United States Air Force and Civil Air Patrol, you will meet cadets from Illinois Wing and other Wings and share in a week of learning, sports, and social activities.
Registration payment will be accepted only through CampDoc. CampDoc is a third-party registration, attendance, and medical records provider Illinois Wing Summer Encampment contracted for the first time in 2021. We feel this is a step forward regarding safely and efficiently storing personnel information. Applicants, parents (if applicable), and commanders must create a login within the CampDoc system to register. The Cost to attend summer encampment as a cadet is $150.00.
The encampment staff is doing everything possible to ensure that our members will be protected as much as possible against the Sars-CoV-2 virus. Our mitigation strategies include but are not limited to Cleaning and disinfecting facilities before cadets report for encampment and regularly throughout the week, hand washing/ sanitizer stations, limiting classroom and billeting availability, limiting CAP vehicle capacity, and others. We are following all regulations and recommendations in accordance with Civil Air Patrol's remobilization plan.
