Don't forget...if you are in line for something and you stand at parade rest, come to attention, take a step forward, and go back to parade rest. Gets funny looks in the bank.

-Your Dad was a TAC officer and you still salute him at home.
-You sleep in your PT gear.
-You don't know the answer to a question in class, you say "This cadet does not know, but will endeavor to find out."

CAP does not use the third person in cadet training.

Where does this stuff come from?

Isn't there a CAP pub that has "I do not know, but will find out"?

Cadet staff watching a bunch of youtube videos from other encampments and thinking it would be "cool" to try at theirs. And those other encampments saw it from a bunch of youtube videos about USMC recruit training, etc., and they thought it would look "cool" as well.

I don't know if that is improper or not, but I wasn't about to contradict the flight sergeant or the entire encampment staff (cadets and seniors).

It's improper and silly.

You Might have gone to encampment if you pack an MRE for school lunch.

Why did they feed you MREs at encampment?

NCWG encampment is held at an austere National Guard Training Center with no available dining facility.  Breakfast and dinner are cooked and served under a large picnic shelter, but lunch is usually a MRE distributed wherever the cadets happen to be at lunch time.

None of the cadets that I know have complained about this arrangement.  In fact, some of them actually like it!

A reasonable accommodation and as you say, probably popular with most participants, but based on the published photos of this activity,
I don't know that calling Camp Butler "austere" is fair.  It looks pretty nice, actually.

At NC wing encampment, everybody got MRE's for lunch. It wasn't that bad actually. I kind of miss them. They had heaters, so they weren't cold.

You might have gone to encampment if:
You use your command voice to give presentations at school
You yell at your TV screen when someone says "Over and out"
You navigate hallway corners using flanking movements
You call the room to attention when the principal walks in the room
You ask your teacher to refer to you by your rank and last name (IE, Cadet Senior Airman King)
You wake up your friends at sleepovers with whistles and yelling to tell them to wake up

It's very nice for what it is, and the cadets seem to like it, but it's nothing like past encampment sites like MCAS Cherry Point, Camp Lejuene, or Seymour Johnson AFB.

I did my basic encampment at Cherry Point in 2004, it was definitely well worth the trip.

Let me save you some embarrassment and bullying:

Don't.
