Almost 400 Cadets, together with 180 Officers and Instructors, from all five companies which make up Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force, have attended their two week annual camp.

For some of the cadets, who are both male and female, between the ages of 13 and 18, this was their first taste of a camp away from their normal environment.

The cadets had an exciting fun packed time and they participated in both military and adventurous training subjects, organised by the County Training team, under Major Mick Cruddas.

This included a mixture of field exercises including camping out for several nights, shooting, skill at arms, fieldcraft, map reading and orienteering, watermanship, drill and sport.

Young Adult Instructors and Senior Cadets following the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award also had the opportunity to complete the Gold award expedition – a gruelling 50+ miles trek over the Brecon Beacons, whilst also taking part in military activities during the second week of camp. The camp was held near Brecon in Wales. The counties most senior cadets were involved in the running and organisation of all of the training companies where they have to put into practice all the training they have received over the past four years,
