I can't even find a meme that characterizes my reaction to this one week before encampment.
I am looking at a packing list requiring web gear and a 24 hour pack for a "Land Nav" class. I checked CAPP 52-24, I did not know about the new pamphlet either, and ES and Ground Team are not listed in the Enacmpment syllabus. Is it reasonable to expet parent to come up with upwards of $150 of gear and equipment on top of the regular packing list?
Therefore, CAPís suggested best practice is for encampments to aim for a tuition rate of at least $225, a $75 increase over CAP average tution in 2016.

But for those that aren't, increasing the cost of of a youth-serving activity for no reason is absurd.
Program Guidance. CAP encampments will be conducted in accordance with CAPP 52-24, CadetEncampment Guide. Encampments may issue operating instructions, handbooks, training materials, etc.,that amplify, but do not contradict or lessen, that documentís guidance
