OVERLAKE COMPOSITE SQUADRON, CIVIL AIR PATROL
Volunteers serving America’s communities, saving lives, and shaping futures.
Serving the local community since 1995, We are a full three-mission squadron and serve all three CAP missions: Emergency Services, Aerospace Education, and Cadet Programs.
Overlake prides itself on training and mentoring outstanding young leaders, effective team-players, and selfless citizens. Each year, Overlake members provide thousands of hours of community service in the Seattle Eastside area. In return for their hard work and dedication, exciting and one-of-a-kind opportunities in leadership, aerospace, travel, and flight are opened to them.
