Civil Air Patrol Squadron to host open house

in Community by

The Low Country Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol will host an Open House during its weekly meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at 40 Summit Road on Hilton Head Island.

Young men and women age 12 and up can join as cadets in the Civil Air Patrol program, which is built around three main areas: emergency services, aerospace education and cadet programs. Cadets are not the only ones who benefit from membership in Civil Air Patrol. Adults 18 and older also have the opportunity to grow and learn through the Civil Air Patrol program.

CAP offers award-winning Professional Development classes, the opportunity to complete Emergency Services training, serve as a mission aircrew member and more.

Adults can join as senior members or as cadet sponsors. Senior members have the opportunity to accept a “duty position,” which allows them to use their talents to benefit their local squadron and Civil Air Patrol.

Teens interested in joining the Low Country Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol should come with a parent or guardian to the meeting. Current senior members and cadets will be on hand to answer questions and offer information about their experiences in Civil Air Patrol.
