From Canopy to Kayak at CCF Adventure Training Day
Last Sunday, 22 cadets and two officers of Corps attended an adventure training day held at Blackland Farm in Sussex.
Cadets completed two high-ropes activities. First, they needed to take turns to climb a wobbly pole and stand on a small platform (about the size of a large pizza box); then, with up to four cadets on the platform, hold on to each other and lean out. The second activity involved cadets working in groups to stack crates to create the tallest tower whilst two cadets stood on the tower. The cadets also completed a kayaking session, providing many with their first kayaking experience. This session taught them the basic skills needed to paddle safely and efficiently. All cadets participated well and completed the British Canoeing Paddle Safety and Paddle Start awards.
