Looking at all these examples, I find it rather silly that everyone has issues separating reality from CAP.
Seriously? MREs for school? Squaring your corners in public? While respectful, calling Every. Single. Person sir/ma'am? And somehow, I don't see anyone sleeping at the position of attention or parade rest.

Just sayin'...  :P

We used MRE's at encampment, too. With the cadets mostly split between two locations, on base and on the other side of the island, since we had to do something for those off base, and the Wing had MREs..

Use what you've got.

Already answered... But is Parris Island ever used for a CAP encampment?

 :)

I would imagine Sea Cadets, but not CAP...

CAWG has had encampments at USN and USMC bases. Parris Island wouldn't be a stretch.

"Uh, Yes, Corporal."

I'm not sure about 2013 but a quick google search showed 2011 was at Parris Island.

Black Knight, did you go to the NYWG 2012 Encampment? We only did 1 PT, on the 1st or 2nd day, after dinner. (Which was a terrible idea.)
Yes, I did. I was in Charlie Flight. Got the third highest scire.
And doing PT after dinner was horrible. I believe it was the 2nd day we did PT

Are you serious?? I never heard of an encampment doing that! WE ALWAYS Did pt every day until graduation  at 0545 sharp!  ???

I remember seeing CAP at an encampment on Schofield in the late 80's. I remember thinking "wow, they're wearing BDUs now in the program". That would have been maybe 89, 90, 91 time frame I guess. They were using GP Mediums out at Area X(the firing ranges) on the north side of Schofield.

I'm going to list a few more examples, but before I do, I would like to point out that these are just exaggerated examples, and never have I done these, nor will I ever do these:

You sign papers with your name and rank
You give your unit's charter number when somebody asks you where you're from
You wake up in the middle of the night at home to do CQ patrol
You eat every meal as quick as possible
You put as many patches as you can on anything
You wear dress blues to a civilian formal event
You use proper radio speech over the phone

You forgot calling the conference room to attention at a business meeting when the boss walks in.

It wasn't encampment but the MCJROTC version.  I spent 2 weeks at Parris Island over Spring break in 1989.  We stayed in the white WWII era barracks that were next to the rifle range.  We had 3 Drill Instructors assigned to us.  We had an AWESOME time.  It was stressful but educational.  We started every morning with the daily dozen, ended every day with drill and did everything from live fire with M-16's, beach landings from landing craft, helicopter rides, rappelling, obstacle and confidence course and even went through the gas chamber.  BEST. SCHOOL. TRIP. EVER.  and on the way home to Massachusetts we even visited Washington DC. 

The year before was a similar experience at Little Creek, the year before at Quantico.....

I have pictures put away from those trips 25 years later

-When you call your teacher ma'am
You didn’t before?

Calling your parents and your teachers Sir or Ma'am should come naturally. I think it rather disrespectful not to give them the respect they deserve.

I call my father and mother "Dad" and "Mom", respectively. Any other adult, I call them "Sir/Ma'am".
