Fieldcraft is the third most popular cadet activity in the Army Cadet Force. Fieldcraft and Military Knowledge are subjects almost unique to the ACF. You will start by learning the basics of personal camouflage and how to move as an individual in the field, then go on to learn how to work together as a section in the field, before eventually commanding your own section.
Working as a team to patrol an area at night and deal with a mock ambush situation is one of the most exciting exercises you will experience.
Fieldcraft is taught throughout the year but during annual camp you will get to live out in the field over a number of days. Working as a team to patrol an area at night and deal with a mock ambush is one of the most exciting exercises that you'll experience during your cadet training.
