Half Term Adventures with the Multi Activity Package
During the half term holiday 240 cadets and CFAVs found themselves armed with paddles, bows, shotguns and drum sticks in Northampton for the Multi Activity Package.
Opportunities such as testing their aim at archery with our team of archery instructors, virtual shooting on a giant simulated shotgun range and learning the basics of playing flutes, bugles and side drums with the County Corps of Drums instructors.
And as if that wasn't enough in a jam packed week, they also got the chance to head out on the water in canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. The weather was the best we could have expected and made the water safety tests and games on the water more bearable.
The week has really raised the profile of the wider cadet experience and the unique opportunities available to every cadets if they want to have a go.SMI Neil Machin - Adventure Training Officer.
