Adventure Training (AT) covers a wide spectrum of outdoor activities, from hill-walking and climbing, to mountain biking or water sports. Some activities are regular fixtures in the RAFAC calendar, others are provided on an ad-hoc basis, and in both cases these can be at a local or national level.
As well as the benefits of exercise and getting to enjoy the great outdoors, AT activities can encourage teamwork, inspire leadership and allow cadets to make long-lasting friendships.
Each year there are two national AT camps run at dedicated National Air Cadet Training Centres - one at NATC Llanbedr and one at NATC Windermere. These are attended by cadets across the Corps and provided a range of activities for them to try over a 4-6 day period, like kayaking, sailing, archery, mountain biking and climbing, all under the supervision of qualified instructors.
In addition to the national AT camps, similar activities are often available throughout the year but on a more local level, so cadets are more likely to be taking part with members the same squadron, wing or region.
