I am age 12-18 and would like to join as a cadet...

Prospective cadets are required to attend three meetings before a membership application can be accepted. This engagement provides an opportunity to experience Civil Air Patrol before paying membership dues. During these three meetings, you will be introduced to our members and the CAP routine. At your third meeting, you can request a membership application if you would like to join us. And we know you will!

Simple Online Membership

CAP is now proud to offer a simple online membership form. This application only takes about 10 minutes and grants membership as soon as the commander or designee approves the application – there’s no time lost waiting for the US Mail.
