The day began with a presentation given by the Contingent Commander and the senior cadets of each section in the Old Library. This was followed by a walk-around and a chance to meet the cadets of each section whilst carrying out training.
The DofE section showed off their teamwork skills with the milk crate challenge on the high ropes course. How high four cadets can get standing on milk crates turned into a real team building event.
The Army section concentrated on weapon training, field craft skills and a leadership task of crossing a river with only a few pieces of equipment that included some old ropes, planks and a tyre.
The Royal Marine cadets demonstrated survival skills which included building shelters, gathering water, fire lighting and catching and preparing animals for eating. A venison stew and fresh mackerel was on offer which went down extremely well with the visiting guests.
