When you join CCF in the Third Year you form part of the Recruits platoon with the expectation that you attend a weekend Recruits Camp at St Martins Plain during February half-term.
Cadets attend parade every Monday and three field days a year. However there are also weekend activities such as flying, sailing, nitexs, provided for the cadets. We find that those who attend these events tend to be the ones that gain promotion and qualifications which are very useful additions to University application and beyond.
Each summer the Army, Navy and RAF run training camps which we recommend cadets attend as the experiences gained there last a lifetime and are very beneficial in terms of developing military, and –more importantly –life skills.
