NYW Encampment History

1999 NYW Leadership Encampment, Fort Drum, NY
29 June - 10 July 2000
Lt Col Anita Martin, Commanding

123 in flight cadets, 68 cadet staff members, and 41 senior members took part in this years encampment. Staff arrived on July 8 to prepare and plan for the upcoming week's events. Cadets arrived on July 10 in the afternoon. 

Upon arrival, cadets in-processed and immediately were sent to their barracks to unpack. After a taste of Army food and a welcoming meeting at the Army's Rapid Deployment Facility, the cadets had almost non stop activities and classes. The First Sergeants woke everyone up at 0530 for Physical Training. From there the Training staff filled up most of the days with classes on Leadership, Aerospace, the military, opportunities in the military, and many other fascinating topics. 

While attending classes during the day, the Standards and Evaluations Team (SET) was hard at work inspecting the cadets' barracks, drill of each flight, and cadets' uniforms. For a break from the normal routine cadets went to the base PX, an M-16 firing range, a military confidence course, took orientation flights in CAP planes, and were lucky enough to see A-10s and F-16s practice bombing runs. 

By the end of the encampment the cadets in flight were hard working teams. Inspection scores improved, teamwork grew, and new friends were made. The encampment ended with a Class A inspection. Each flight was inspected in drill, uniforms, barracks appearance, and had to give a presentation to the Training Staff. From there they went to the cadet social at the bowling alley where they were allowed to relax a bit. 

The final day involved an awards ceremony and Pass in Review. The highlight of this event was 5 C-130s circling the parade field before landing at Wheeler-Sack Air Base.
