Blairgowrie Detachment had an amazing day of Camp Craft, held in collaboration with Backcountry Survival. This event marked a remarkable day of outdoor education and camaraderie, where Cadets honed their wilderness skills and earned the prestigious National Outdoor Learning Award.

The Cadets showcased their prowess in a range of outdoor activities, from mastering intricate knot-tying techniques to constructing impressive shelters, both natural and man-made. No camp is complete without the delightful tradition of marshmallow toasting, and this day was no exception.
