EIGHT cadets from 272 Wisbech Air Training Corps joined 35 other squadrons from the Beds/Cambs Wing at Napier Barracks in Folkestone for this year's Easter Camp.
Sergeant (Sgt) Ben Stek, Corporal (Cpl) Tim Atkins and Cadets (Cdt) Rebecca Best, Ryan Timbrell, Oli Grocott, Luke Jermy, Russell Coombes and Robert Smith enjoyed seven days of activities and fun.
Whilst there, they completed several exercises including Communications and Navigation, Raft Building, Rock Climbing and Abseiling and enjoyed the thrill of the DCCT (Dismounted Close Combat Trainer) Range which is a computerised shooting range. 7 of the cadets also were able to enjoy a flight in a Chinook helicopter.
This camp is just one of the many camps that the cadets get a chance to attend each year as well as many other activities.
