CCF Navigation Exercise

On Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th June forty Year 8 and 9 cadets completed their two day navigation exercise. The aim of the event was to give the cadets an opportunity to learn and test their navigation skills in the real open environment. They were based around Sherwood Forest over the two days, walking on average 15km a day whilst learning to navigate. They camped overnight at Walesby scout campsite and learnt what to and what not to cook in a trangia for your tea after a long day of walking. The weather was kind if not sunny, and they finished the two days at Clumber Park being treated to an ice cream.
