Are There Visitor Days for USMC Parris Island, South Carolina?

Visitors most frequently visit Parris Island during Family Day, or the day that marine recruits graduate from basic training. Visitors are allowed on base for the ceremony with a valid photo identification and valid registration and proof of insurance for their vehicles.

Families may visit their recruits and be taken around the island by them from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Family Day. This follows the graduation ceremony, which begins at 9 a.m. This is the first opportunity that families have to visit their recruits since they departed for basic training. Current and former service members may wear uniforms to the graduation ceremony.
