Quota Camp Application

Completed applications must be submitted using the form below by end of parade night Wed 14, Feb 2018.

We are now taking applications for Quota camps for the summer of 2018. Below you will find a description and requirements for the available courses, as well as an application form.

Please review the courses and complete the Application (using the link below this paragraph ) to indicate a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice. Giving us 3 choices maximizes your chances of getting a camp. You will not be considered for a camp that isn’t in your preference list, even if we have positions available.

At this time, we don’t know how many positions for each camp we will get or the dates for the courses. We will submit our requested numbers based on the application forms we receive. In March, we will receive a list from our Command group indicating how many positions we will get, at which time the CO will submit names based on the matrix points for each cadet until all our spots are filled.

It is possible that we will be offered additional positions right up to the start day of the camp, but there is no guarantee.

At this time, we don’t know which camp serial we will get, so we can’t tell you when the cadets could be away. We won’t know this until the end of May.
