for youth 12-18 years of age
Civil Air Patrol’s cadet program transforms youth into dynamic Americans and aerospace leaders through a curriculum that focuses on leadership, aerospace, fitness and character. As cadets participate in these four elements, they advance through a series of achievements, earning honors and increased responsibilities along the way. Many of the nation’s astronauts, pilots, engineers and scientists first explored their careers through CAP.
The Colorado Cadet Program highlights challenges, opportunities to lead, love of aviation, friendships and fun. Cadets perform various community service projects and assist in local disaster relief.
