Over the Easter holiday period HSY ACF delivered 2, 4 day Junior Camps for over 180 one star training cadets from across the County. The aim of our Junior Camp is to give our cadets an exciting and challenging training experience to work towards achieving their ACS star level, while introducing them to the wider cadet experience and longer periods of time away from home. This prepares them for future Army Cadet activities by giving them a solid foundation to their training.
Across the four days the cadets participated in ACS activities including Skill at Arms, Shooting, First Aid and Drill and Turnout. The highlight of the week for many of the cadets was the Adventurous Training package that took place at Welton Waters, where the cadets enjoyed a multi-activity training day including raft building, paddleboarding, team games, rafted canoeing, and topper racing. Other activities included the Field Gun Run, Tag Archery, Laser Shot Gun, Command Tasks and a STEM challenge. In the STEM challenge the cadets had to work as a team to build a catapult, which they could use to ‘splat a CFAV’ if they were successful in building a working machine.
