How To Join

Step 1

Contact the squadron and arrange to visit a meeting with your parents. Click here for meeting information.

Step 2

Attend at least three weekly meetings.

Step 3

Complete the Membership Application online:

Ask your squadron commander if you are eligible to apply online.  Only new cadets can join online.  Former members have to submit a paper application.

When you join online, your form of payment is charged immediately.  However, the membership is in a pending status until the squadron commander verifies the prospective cadet's proof of identity. 

Once the proof of identity has been confirmed, the commander can approve the application and the cadet will be an active member.   For a list of acceptable documents used for the proof of identity, please see Attachment 2 in CAP Regulation 39-2 CAP Membership.
