No one at our encampment did the Air Force shuffle in the mess hall. At least no one I saw.
6. You recognize cadets at any CAP event in the future.
7. You find you CAP ID number on random tshirts
8. You can meet someone you haven't seen in months and instantly be reconnected.
9.  You've done things that most teens never have and never will do.

Memories of encampment past.

Flying to Maxwell AFB on board a C-54 Skymaster.
Housing in old VOQ right on the Maxwell AFB Flightline.
Seemingly endless drill & ceremonies in front of the hangars at Maxwell AFB.
Doing push ups and counting sand fleas in front of those same hangars.
No BDU's or fatigue uniforms, all males wore khaki's starched so stiff they would stand by themselves, tie tucked in between the 2d and 3d button on the uniform. Females wore skirts.
Going to the range and familiarization firing with the M-1 Carbine.  (Marching to and from the range of course).
Salt Tablets
mandatory breaks where everyone had lay down and elevate their feet for at least 15 minutes.
Friday Afternoon Parade (it seemed all over the base). 
Flying home in a C-47.

11th Armored Cavalry Regiment
2d Armored Cavalry Regiment
3d Infantry Division
504th BattleField Surveillance Brigade

ARMY:  Because even the Marines need heros.    
CAVALRY:  If it were easy it would be called infantry.

Seriously. 

If respect and common courtesy isn't enough, how about self-preservation?  Anyone who provides you a living, a service, or can potentially negatively
effect your life should always be referred to in that manner.

Growing up in Michigan just a few short decades ago my teachers seemed to HATE being called sir or ma'am.
They were big fans of being called Mr. xxx, Ms. xxx, Mrs. xxx or Dr. xxx if they had their phd.
In every conversation you said their name no less than 3 times. I think people in Michigan just like to hear their names out loud.

Not to be contradictory or anything.... same thing in reality. Formal and respectful at all times.

None of that is really that big a deal, encampment-wise.  Few of them will be doing 0500 starts anymore, but beyond that,
pretty much SOP.

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

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.

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..

That would be Oahu.
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.

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

:)

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

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

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".

In the part of the world where I live (TN), all adults tend to be addressed as "Sir" and "Ma'am."  The two teachers in my family only get addressed as "Mrs. Wilson" or "Miss Wilson" when there are multiple "ma'ams" present and there is a need to distinguish one from the group.

And in the liberally dominant area where I'm from, most teachers/adults prefer being called by their first names, rarely even Mr./Mrs. Jones. They tell us to stop if we even start to call them sir/ma'am.

Let me just say that after a few months of waiting, seeing the conversation go this far off topic is a bit discouraging. So here are some new you might have gone to encampment ifs. Again, never done any of these myself and I never will.

You build a professional Obstacle Course in your backyard
You bring your 24 hour pack on a regular neighborhood stroll
You look for uniform mistakes in regular civilians
You snap to attention when answering someone of higher authority
You ask for a buddy to come with you to the restroom
You ask for a buddy to come with you anywhere

It is huge, ungainly, and took me 5 minutes to decipher what it was. Looks like the meme of Picard doing a face palm.

you wake up doing to-the-rear in you sleep. (this happened to me at my basic encampment and I almost fell off the bunk  ;D )
you randomly notice when people have their hair out of regs.
you form a ripple line in the mess hall at school
you constantly have jodies running through you head
you stalk all the people from your basic encampment on Facebook
you don't stop talking about encampment till your next one
you can't stand people who ask you, "Why would you do that?!" when you tell them you just spent a week of your summer at a boot camp for fun
you listen to the songs from your encampment video every day and tear up with nostalgia
you square your corners in public
you have to stop yourself from shouting "YES SIR!" at your teacher when he asks something

You refer to the cafeteria at your school as the mess hall.
