Sergeant Vickery and Corporal Gaywood from 613 Squadron were both fortunate enough to get places on the annual wing adventure training camp which, this year, was held at Halton Training Camp, Lancaster.
The week was filled with different opportunities from caving to climbing, walking, kayaking and even Go Ape! It was a brilliant week to make friends and have a laugh and just enjoy being with like-minded people doing fun activities.
“I spent a week at Halton AT camp. Although having to endure harsh rain and steep hills, I met 29 other amazing people, and became closer to many friends.
Through activities such as kayaking and climbing I pushed myself to learn new skills and excel in my areas of confidence, while pushing my self, where I was less comfortable. This camp of 30 cadets and 13 staff ascended the lake district, rowed miles down rivers and climbed the heights of one of England’s largest indoor climbing centres, in the near-by town Kendal.
With many other activities such as swimming and high-roping, each and every Cadet had a outstanding week. This was one of the most enjoyable camps I have personally been on and I look forward to attending more camps like this one.”
– Corporal Ben Gaywood
