Summer Encampment 2020 Update (20 Marcch 2020)

At this point, the encampment is still on. We have no idea how long the current situation is going to last, or what steps we’ll be taking in June regarding COVID-19. We are continuing to move forward with our planning.


There was a scare we might lose our state funding, but that didn’t happen, and we are still able to fully support the encampment.


We have over 400 cadets registered to attend the encampment, with about 300 paid. It’ll be a great training opportunity for all participants.


We will continue to explore options to do smaller, isolated training venues within the broader encampment experience that might allow us safer distance between participants.


If we do have to cancel, we will fully refund the money paid to the LEAD Foundation.


If you’re interested, we encourage you to register and plan to attend this premier training opportunity. Registration remains open until April 30th. $50 Scholarships from the LEAD Foundation remain available.
