Are You Interested in the CAP Cadet Program?
Would you like to honor and serve America? Do you want to prepare for your future while making new friends? Then rise to the challenge of cadet membership in the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol.
Cadets fly, learn to lead, hike, camp, get in shape and push themselves to new limits. If your dreaming about a career in aviation, space or the military, CAP's Cadet Program is for you.
To become a cadet, you must be at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old. Cadets at the Wylie Apte Cadet Squadron meet every Monday evening from 1830-2100 hrs (6:30-9:00pm) at the Ossipee Town Hall on Main Street, Center Ossipee, and have the option of taking part in any of our regular weekend activities, cadet orientation flights, first aid and CPR training and much more. On top of that, our cadets also have opportunities to attend leadership encampments, career academies and other activities during the summer.
