Due to health and safety concerns, the 2020 NH Wing Summer Academy has been cancelled. With the level of uncertainty, the Senior Staff has made the difficult decision not to proceed with holding the NH Summer Academy this year. The team will work to identify additional opportunities for Encampment and NCOLS in the second half of 2020 as things begin to normalize. Additional communications will be sent out as more details about future events are available.
Under direction and guidance from CAP National HQ, the NH Summer Academy team is continuing to plan and prepare for Encampment, NCOLS, and Honor Guard Academy and are committed to providing a first-class program for our cadets. At this time, we are closely monitoring the ongoing situation and will continue to do so over the next two months.
We encourage all interested CAP Cadets to continue to apply to each program through the registration website. We will not be requiring an initial deposit to be made at this time due to the COVID-19 situation. Space in each of these programs is limited--Encampment and NCOLS operate on a first come, first served basis and Honor Guard Academy operates via an application and selection process like other National Cadet Special Activity programs. We recommend submitting your registration as soon as possible.
Our focus on the health and safety of our cadets and senior staff is paramount. We will provide further updates in the coming weeks.
The NH Summer Leadership Academy Staff Selection Day Exercise will be conducted next Saturday, March 21st. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, our team is working to develop a plan that will minimize the risk of all attendees while still being able to effectively complete the necessary requirements for staff selection day.
The NH Summer Academy Command Staff has made the decision to shift Staff Selection Day to a virtual event on Saturday, March 21st. While this scenario is not ideal, we feel as though it is the best way to move forward in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.
We will be utilizing Cisco Webex Meetings to conduct all Virtual BOR’s. Each cadet will be assigned a 20 minute time slot at some point between the hours of 8am and 5pm. It is our recommendation to log into the meeting a few minutes early to be sure you don’t run into any technical issues. When you first log in, you will be placed into a virtual waiting room until the team is ready for your BOR to start.
