1. Encampment Brochures/invitation letters
The purpose of the invitation/borchure is to entice the cadets and seniors alike to attend the activity. It should be written to interest the individual to attend the activity. Information on how to apply, what is needed and where it should be sent should be included, as well as dates and the location of the activity. Here are some examples of brocures and letters, taken from the web or sent in by submission. The formats of the files are in parenthesis.

4. Encampment Philosophy and Goals
One of the philosophies of the NYWG Encampment is to have the senior members in attendance perform as mentors, while allowing cadets to run the activitiy. The first document is a cadet's testimonial about the mentoring program at encampment (a description of encampment mentoring is in the NETM), and the second document is a simple form for cadets and seniors both to use to encourage and evaluate mentoring sessions. The form is especially helpful for encampments which are just starting to implement a mentoring program (within the first 5 years).
