I've got a cadet who earned his encampment credit for a JROTC summer leadership school. The question is, is he eligible for the encampment ribbon or not. 39-3 just says completion of an encampment; so it doesn't say it has to be a CAP encampment, but it also doesn't say that it is awarded merely for encampment credit.

I had a cadet get encampment credit for a Sea Cadets course, so I asked the question through the knowledgebase.  The reply I got:

"Completing a CAP encampment garners the CAP encampment ribbon. Completing an program that CAP/CP has determined to be equivalent satisfies the Mitchell Award’s encampment requirement but does not garner the CAP encampment ribbon."

Not going to lie, but that would actually be really weird to see a C/2ndLt+ without an encampment ribbon.
