Cadets Summer Sneak Peak of Joint Forces Command base RAF Wyton
This summer eight cadets from 2418 (Sherwood) Squadron joined twelve other cadets from across South and East Midlands Wing on an annual summer camp to RAF Wyton.
Here they enjoyed an action packed week with activities ranging from drill and flying to raft building and a visit to the RAF Regiment.
After arriving and settling in the cadets jumped straight in to action with a sports night where they go to know their camp mates better and began to bond with each other.
Throughout the week they competed against each other in two teams: A flight and B flight. Competitions included various sports (such as ultimate frisbee, football, rounders etc.), loom band making, room inspections, raft building and a final drill competition.
To add to the competitive spirt, each team was given a flight mascot (a rubber duck) to protect. Eventually both ducks were captured when tents were raided and one tent was even emptied whilst cadets were away!
However not everything was a competition. Both flights enjoyed mingling on visits to the Duxford air museum, the RAF Regiment, RAF police and the Pathfinders museum. They also enjoyed a film night together towards the end and fun ‘paper plate awards’ were handed out to highlight some of the best memories shared.
Flight Sergeants Saffron Green and Jake Foster, Corporals Remi Munn and Fraser Sanders together with cadets James Hudson, Jack Woodward, Henry Woodward and Rebekah Oldknow (all from 2418 Sherwood Sqn) thoroughly enjoyed the week, made lots of friends and can’t wait to return next year.
They all agreed that “Everything was awesome!”
