WHAT IS THE CIVIL AIR PATROL?
The Civil Air Patrol is a public service organization that also serves as an Auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. The North Hennepin Squadron is a local entity, similar to a Scouting unit, that fulfills the mission of the Civil Air Patrol in our community. Consisting of both Cadet (youth), and Senior (adult) programs, the Civil Air Patrol seeks to support three missions in providing for aerospace education, emergency services, and leadership and youth development through the Cadet program.

Northern Star Scouting would like to thank the North Hennepin Squadron for hosting a Merit Badge opportunity for area Scouts!
