Encampment is a week-long summer activity designed to immerse new cadets in the missions and core values of Civil Air Patrol. Cadets are put into a military-style environment, with activities that include classroom courses, physical training, leadership development, and learning military customs and courtesies (marching, saluting, etc.). North Carolina's encampment is usually held at Camp Butner north of Durham or Stanly Air National Guard base near Albemarle.
