Between 2nd and 9th August 2014, 7 cadets from 2431 (Keighley) Squadron ATC attended a Summer Camp at RAF Henlow, Bedfordshire.

Our week long camp began at 08:00 (BST) at our Squadron HQ where we were picked up by the squadron minibus and taken to Wetherby Services, where we got on the coach supplied by Wing.

When we arrived we carried out a Famex. This is a familiarisation exercise designed so that we get to know each other and the base.

Throughout the camp we took part in many different activities, including:

Off-Road Driving, Museum Visits, Flying, Shooting, Drill, Bowling, Swimming, Sports, Disco, Raft Building, visits to Maintenance facilities and many more.

Whilst we were there we were split into 2 flights. A Flight and B Flight. A competition ran throughout the duration of the camp between the 2 flights. A Flight were in the lead until Wednesday, but B Flight won by 200 Points. They therefore won the Best Flight Award.

Overall, all cadets who attended had a great week and loved meeting new people, who, we hope to see again on other camps and events.
