Camp Robert L. Boucher

Vision, Mission, About

ESTA Vision Statement:
"Excellence in Emergency Service Performance."

ESTA Mission Statement:
"The mission of the Emergency Services Training Academy is planned, structured, and innovative "success-based" instruction in the fundamental and operational components of the Civil Air Patrol Emergency Services Program, leading to the consistently outstanding readiness of Washington Wing’s mission-related assets.”

About ESTA:
The Emergency Services Training Academy holds training events on the 3rd weekend of the month -- excepting July and August.  Each activity is held at Camp Robert L. Boucher in Ephrata, WA -- located on the Ephrata Municipal Airport.  During these events there are excellent opportunities for Cadets and Sr. Officers of every level to learn, grow and succeed in Emergency Services specialties. Our courses are thorough and demanding, and usually require at least a 2-month sequence to fully embrace and demonstrate the required knowledge for completing qualification.  Even after attending just one session, the results are tangible and can be followed up at the squadron level, at a training mission or even at Washington Wing's outstanding GSAR Academy.   We are dedicated to building friendships in an atmosphere of teamwork and excellence, and building the skills to be outstanding assets to our communities, state, and nation.

For the long range view of our planned training schedule, please see our 2016-2017 Training Plan.
