Our annual CCF Cadet Camp took place during the last week of June. The cadets took part in a number of activities ranging from 25m rifle shooting, where they had to get 10 rounds in as small a grouping a possible, to a day trip to Bewl Water where they took part in water sports activities, mountain biking and orienteering. During this day out we even taught a few cadets how to ride a bike, a valuable life skill. On the last day of camp, the Cadets took part in a camp wide competition testing a variety of skills such as Drill, mountain biking, military knowledge, survival skills, leadership and shooting. The team worked excellently together gaining a 2nd and a 3rd in Leadership and the March and Shoot.
We are also pleased to say that three of our Ratton Cadets have received a promotion alongside their peers from Eastbourne College.
Congratulations to Hellen Stratakou, Jemima Hadland, David Carden.
