Cadet Programs

The CAP Cadet Program is a year-round program where Cadets fly, learn to lead, camp, get in shape, and push themselves to new limits. If you’re dreaming about STEM-related careers like aviation, space, cybersecurity 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 18 years old.  Cadets meet 2 hours per week and one Saturday per month, on average, and also have opportunities to attend leadership encampments, career academies, and other activities during the summer.
