Chiswick's Army Cadets Grab Annual Camp Challenge in Wales
Challenging two week camp a roaring success
Army Cadets from 206 Chiswick (Royal Signals) were among nearly five hundred cadets and a hundred adult volunteer leaders from all over North and West London who have just returned from a challenging two weeks at their annual Training Camp - this year at the Brecon Beacons in Wales, held between the 11-24 August.
Clay Target shooting, Kayaking, Obstacle courses, high ropes training, paintball and first aid training are just a few of the varied activities for the cadets over the two weeks of camp. Sports, target shooting and testing against the Army Cadet syllabus, military skills and many other stretching activities were also part of the programme.
Colonel Mark Hodson TD, Commandant of the Middlesex and North West London Army cadet Force said "Over five hundred teenage Army Cadets from North and West London have enjoyed a real opportunity to develop personally and hone their skills in the Welsh countryside. It’s been a really excellent two weeks camp, with a varied programme of activities which fully engaged the interest of our cadets and staff. The camp is the culmination of a lot of hard work throughout the year. Looking after all of these young people is a challenging task and I am really very grateful to all my adult volunteers who give up their time so generously for our future citizens."
