  • WHY:

    • Encampment is a cadet’s key to many Civil Air Patrol opportunities from rising in leadership and grade in their squadrons to National Cadet Special Activities.

  • HOW:

    • First-time Cadet Applications are now available on eServices via Registration Zone. Here is the direct link:

      • You will need to login to eServices

      • If the link does not work for you.  Navigate to Registration Zone and place ‘RMR-CO’ in the search bar.  This will take you to just the Colorado events and you should find the Encampment Student Applications quickly. 

    • If you have difficulty with the Registration Zone process, not to worry!  Let us know at 

      • Registration Zone is a new process for all of Civil Air Patrol and we do expect to work out some bumps.  

      • There are humans behind all of this and we understand if something didn’t go right.  We will work with you.
