2011 CAP Summer Encampment – a snapshot or two
The 2011 summer Encampment at Camp Ripley occurred June 11 – 18. Cadets who went had a variety
of reasons to attend. According to “The Gremlin”, the Encampment's daily news paper, it was the basic
desire to excel in CAP activities and mission. Some individuals said they wanted to test themselves
over a week's worth of intense training with exacting performance standards, or they had a desire to do
something different over the summer, or a desire to serve in the military, or they had a need for
discipline. According to Capt. Nash Pherson, Encampment's Commander, “The primary goal of
Encampment is to learn, grow, develop, and be challenged.”
If you're interested in more photos, stories, and complete overview, go to the Encampment's website
at www.cadetleadership.org/. Turn sound on for youtube videos, browse through hundreds of photos,
read the daily paper, The Gremlin, which is where the photos and text for this article were obtained.
