As Cadets of Washington Wing; Did you know that you are eligible for a scholarship through the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation (CCLF)?


  CCLF offers scholarships to hardworking and dedicated CAP cadets who would like financial help to attend leadership focused CAP activities. 

 If you are attending a leadership  related National Cadet  Special Activity or encampment this summer (or any leadership activity at any time of the year for that   matter), the CCLF may grant you a scholarship for a   percentage of the activity cost.  
The application process is extremely simple, and more often 
than not, the CCLF will graciously provide a scholarship. Personally, I have applied for a scholarship through CCLF 
more than once, and was blessed with a scholarship each time.

  If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to help fund
 a leadership focused cadet activity that you are attending this summer, check out the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation website. If you have any questions about CCLF scholarships, please feel free to contact me.

Pilot written exam. The fee to take the exam is $150. This fee is added to your lodging and meals for a total cost of $300.

The Ground School is intense in preparation for the written examination. Free time will be very limited for the 4 days of ground school, but your efforts will pay off handsomely when you walk
away from the testing facility with the written portion of the Private Pilot test COMPLETE.

Glider and power aircraft students may be allowed
to make a single solo flight if they meet all of the training requirements and have demonstrated flying abilities and the glider students have a Student Pilots’ Certificate and the power students have an FAA Class 3 Medical and Student Pilots’ Certificate.

 New Announcement 
Project Appleseed
South Sound Composite Squadron is proud to announce Project Appleseed 3-5 August, 2018

Project Appleseed is a nationwide program that teaches firearm safety and Revolutionary War history. Students will alternate between the firing range and history seminars. While the program is open to anyone, our activity will limit students to cadets only. Project Appleseed will be providing the program and Evergreen Sportsmen's Club (near Little Rock, WA) will be providing the range. All we have to do is show up. This event involves the NRA Marksmanship Program that is also done at Basic Marksmanship Encampment (BME) with Lewis County Composite Squadron. Anyone wishing to continue progress made at BME (or on their own) should bring their scoring records.

There is room for up to 20 students. We are looking for staff to 
assist with Food Services and any camp logistics - cadets are welcome as staff as well.

We are also requesting assistance from any available senior members for the general weekend, kitchen staff, and to help 
with scoring targets. Scoring help is needed beginning about 
1pm Sunday, we will provide a short training session, and then it 
will get very busy very quickly. Parents can help as well since 
scoring is a Project Appleseed function. As we need a 
head-count for this too, please register. Under "Registering as," please choose "Scoring Help." There will be no charge for scoring help.

Staff will not have the opportunity to shoot, thus the reduced price.

The fee for students (including camping, food, and ammunition) 
is $100. Staff expenses are only $40. If you plan to shoot, you are
 a student. Cadet Commander will be selected from student cadets.

NOTE: Cots are not available, so please bring one. The ground may not be suitable for a sleeping pad. Have questions?
