 In 2019, members from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Maine, Alaska  Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington D.C., and Tennessee wings joined the Virginia Wing cadets and senior members dedicated to this outstanding activity. The students, cadre, and senior staff make the most of the 8 days they have to learn about leadership, teamwork, flight, character development, mentorship, the importance of physical fitness and a host of team building challenges.
