CCF Camp 2016 - Warcop Camp Cumbria

This year’s CCF Summer Camp took place at Warcop Camp in Cumbria with 54 Cadets from the Army and Navy Sections of the CCF attending.
 
On Saturday 2 July, all the Cadets and six staff members left School for the 6-hour journey to Warcop Camp in Cumbria. This year’s camp promised to be an exciting and varied week of adventurous and military activities, which would stretch and challenge everyone.
 
On arrival the Cadets were given accommodation which was basic but comfortable. Once beds were made and kit was sorted there was a briefing about the week’s activities followed by the first meal in the army cookhouse. The rest of the evening was spent socialising with Cadets from many other schools, relaxing and preparing for the first day’s activities.
 
The Cadets first activity day was Adventure training in the Lake district with a choice of many different activities which included Hill walking. Kayaking, Sailing, and Mountain biking. All activities were extremely challenging and thoroughly enjoyed by the Cadets.
 
Our Military package started with a morning on TIWAF (Training in woods and forests) and the afternoon FIBUA (Fighting in built up areas), both which are advanced training skill for our Cadets.

The following days included a Live firing range day and Archery package were all Cadets carried out their qualification shoot with the Cadet L98A2 assault rifle and had archery as background activity. Waterman ship run by the Royal Engineers, during this phase Cadets learnt how to operate and steer assault boats and then they had to build and race section rafts across the lake. They were also given instruction and allowed to handled many foreign weapons including the RPG7 rocket launcher and the AK47 assault rifle captured in Afghanistan

Our Final activity day was split between First aid training in the morning and a close quarter battle lane in the afternoon. In the CQB battle lane the sections had to fight against a Zombie enemy which was great fun. All cadets attending the First Aid training received a qualification in resuscitation. 

The Army Camp at Warcop had a fantastic variety of activities and training opportunities for all our Cadet who thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
