A focus on Lincolnshire ACF summer camp

Cadets and adult volunteers from Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force have spent their summer holidays kayaking, climbing, and team building.

The 10 day camp also gave Cadets the opportunity to cook in the field, take part in a navigation exercise, and practice their First-Aid skills, with many Cadets receiving promotions.

Major Dave Mullock, Cadet Executive Officer at Lincolnshire ACF, said: “We are pleased to have offered what is for many the highlight of the Cadet calendar. Cadets challenged themselves to take part in training and new activities and found the experience extremely enjoyable.

Climbing on annual camp“Attending annual camp helps young people to develop vital skills such as independence and self-discipline, and for many new Cadets, it is their first experience of being away from home. There is something for everyone to get involved in and it is rewarding to see so many cadets get involved in activities that they would not be able to try at their detachments.”

The annual camp took place between 26 July and 4 August 2015.
