CCF Easter Adventure Training Week

Published 3 May 2023

During the first week of the Easter holidays, a group of 28 CCF cadets from Years 10, 11 and 12 visited the Isle of Wight to participate in a range of outdoor ‘Adventurous Training’. We had a great time doing activities including ‘capture the flag’ with laser rifles, mountain biking, orienteering, climbing, and paddle boarding. 

It was an amazing opportunity to meet new people from different year groups and try new things, working both in teams and as individuals.As well as the more physical activities, we also enjoyed some other games and competitions, with both students and staff participating in archery and bowling. Captain Edwards beat all the cadets at bowling and Major Brooker was the only person to hit the apple in the first archery session, although this was matched by James Holland (Y11) in the second session. Despite the mix of ages, we all formed new friendships that we wouldn’t haveotherwise have and were proud to be awarded our Aventure Training week badges, with some cadets receiving their second badge as they have attended in both Years 10 and 11.

We all had an amazing time and highly recommend it to anybody who has the opportunity to take part through the CCF in the future. Massive thanks to all the staff who made the camp possible.
