Are You Ready for VAWG Encampment 2019?

11 Aug - 18 Aug 2019 @ Fort Pickett, VA

In 2018, the Virginia Wing Encampment had the most participants in the entire nation, and the second largest number of first year students. As one of the largest encampments, the total participants averages over 400, with students and cadre from VA and the surrounding Middle East Region.  Students, cadre and senior staff come together for 8 days to learn about leadership, teamwork, flight, character development, mentorship, the importance of physical fitness and a host of team building challenges. You can follow our adventures here at VAWG Encampment on Facebook and on the wing's Instagram account.
