Due the complex nature of this activity, no refunds are available after applications close.
Refund requests received prior to applications closing will be submitted for consideration to Wing DCP Lt Col Mary Albright. 
Refund requests for Encampment that are approved are subject to a $50 administrative fee.


Families with financial need can apply for the Cadet Encampment Assistance Program (CEAP).
Deadline to apply for 2024 Summer CEAP is May 1st, 2024.
All cadet applicants should receive a notice if they are a CEAP recipient by Early May.

If you applied for CEAP and received an email confirmation from NHQ that you were given a scholarship; you must still register for encampment, but please DO NOT pay for your application. CEAP money will be paid from NHQ directly to the Encampment on your behalf. 

If you applied for CEAP and have not heard anything, please register for encampment and wait to pay. If you do not hear anything from NHQ about your CEAP application by May 30th, please pay at that time. You will be refunded if you are granted a CEAP scholarship later in the year.
