Camarillo Civil Air Patrol Squadron Marks Remobilization With Special Public Event on Saturday July 17th


Camarillo, California – July 11, 2021 – The California Wing of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) has recently remobilized to fully active status as the state recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although search and rescue activities, essential training, and some other critical operations continued over the past 14 months, many other activities had to be conducted online only. Local units, including the Camarillo CAP Squadron, also assisted in the distribution of food in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties in response to the COVID-19 National Emergency Declaration.

Adhering to current health-safety measures, a wide range of CAP in-person training, professional development and Cadet activities have now resumed.  This includes orientation flights and basic training for Cadet recruits between the ages of 12 and 18. These activities are in addition to continued search and rescue missions and other efforts. 

To mark the remobilization of the California Wing, Camarillo Squadron 61 is holding a public event on Saturday July 17th from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM at the CAP facilities at the Camarillo Airport - 55 Durley Ave, Camarillo, CA 93010.  The event will showcase recently renovated facilities and some of the CAP equipment and personnel. Thanks will also be offered to individuals and businesses that have supported the Civil Air Patrol.
