RAF Summer Camp
Every year, cadets are given the opportunity to attend a camp on an operational RAF station within the UK. These camps last a week (normally Saturday to Saturday or Wednesday to Wednesday) with the purpose of them experiencing Service life. Typically, this will be the first week after the end of the academic year for Freemen's cadets, which is usually the week prior to enrichment week for Glyn cadets.
They will sleep in RAF accommodation blocks, eat at the airmen's mess and visit the various sections around the station. They'll meet the base personnel, as well as take part in sports, quizzes, aircraft recognition competitions and any social activities which may be available. There will be drill, uniform and room inspections, and everything will earn points for you as an individual and for your team. Cadets over 16 may receive a work experience placement whilst on the camp where they see first-hand exactly what a job within the Royal Air Force involves.
Everyone will normally get a flight in one of the Air Experience Flight's Tutor aircraft and being on an RAF station puts them in a perfect position to get opportunity flights on other aircraft which may have a few spare seats. Helicopter flight anyone?
Each RAF station has an Air Cadet Liaison Officer (ACLO) who will ensure that the camp runs smoothly and that they get support and many opportunities to do other exciting activities.
We have requested that the next proposed RAF summer camp be held at:
RAF Lossiemouth (TBC) over the period 6th – 13th July 2019
