Day 1 - Adventure Training North Norfolk

Updated: Jun 23

The cadets embarked on an exhilarating adventure deep in the heart of North Norfolk, where the dense forests and rugged landscapes promised both challenges and unforgettable experiences. Armed with compasses and maps, they set off on a navigation exercise that tested their orienteering skills to the limit. The cadets meticulously plotted their course through the dense undergrowth, often pausing to double-check their bearings and ensure they stayed on the right path. The thrill of discovery and the satisfaction of successfully navigating the tricky terrain brought a sense of camaraderie and achievement among the group.


As the day progressed, the cadets ventured further into the forest, where towering trees and the sounds of nature enveloped them in an almost mystical atmosphere. The forest walks were more than just a physical challenge; they offered a unique opportunity to observe wildlife and appreciate the natural beauty of North Norfolk. The cadets reinforced their First Class Skills (navigation, map reading), adding an educational dimension to their adventure. With each step, they grew more attuned to their surroundings, honing their survival skills and fostering a deep respect for the environment.


Nightfall brought a different kind of excitement as the cadets set up camp under the stars. They worked together to pitch tents and prepare a hearty meal, demonstrating teamwork and resourcefulness. The highlight of the evening was the log crossing challenge, where cadets tested their balance and bravery by crossing a log bridge over a bubbling stream. Cheers and laughter filled the air as each cadet took their turn, some wobbling precariously while others confidently strode across. The adventure in North Norfolk not only strengthened their navigation and survival skills but also forged lasting friendships and memories that the cadets would cherish for years to come.


As the camp settled, the enticing aroma of a BBQ filled the air. The cadets eagerly gathered around as the OC and senior cadets took charge of the grill, cooking up a feast of burgers and sausages. The sounds of sizzling meat and laughter blended harmoniously, creating a lively and convivial atmosphere. Alongside the BBQ, the cadets prepared classic camp food: nuts, tuna in tin and beans. Sharing stories and jokes, they enjoyed the delicious meal under the summer solstice sky, appreciating the simple yet profound joy of good food and great company. This hearty dinner was the perfect way to end an adventurous day 1.
