A Welsh Week

Cadets from the Sqn have just returned from a weeks adventure training in Snowdonia, taking part in hill walking, rock climbing and a two day expedition in wild country. Staying at Capel Curig camp the cadets undertook intensive training in navigation, route finding, expedition planning, radio communication work, campcraft and experienced a range of mountain weather from rain and visibility of 10 metres to bright sunshine and visibility measured in many miles. Several groups of new cadets succesfully completed a challenging 2 day expedition at the end of the week without any adult staff being present and more experienced cadets gained quality mountain days in preperation for their Silver expeditions in August.
