Afterwards, another team-based activity: crossing the “River Wild” armed only with a stack of milk crates. Simple but effective, and a sure fire way to get to know a group of strangers much better.
To finish the day, the cadets enjoyed their first meal at the bush camp before hearing about the potential South Africa trip they’re all working hard to be a part of.
Day two saw the cadets split into their groups and begin the first activity rotations. During the Wednesday and Thursday, each group will complete four rotations lasting roughly 3 hours each: an ILM Level 3 qualification, a series of command tasks situated in and around Lydeard Farm, a mock barn build and a theory-based strategy exercise. They will also be interviewed by CVQO Chief Executive Guy Horridge and Outposts Managing Director Michael Kingscote.
