The Camp Photo.

This feature covers the six days of our trip to Cornwall.  This trip was triggered by our strong tradition of expedition training.  Many of our cadets have been taught first aid.  They know that an accident while on expedition could require evacuation from areas that are inaccessible.  Even the Chilterns and Cotswolds are not completely ambulance friendly.  On a gold expedition, in wild country, specialist equipment is required and this often means calling on air support.  Cornwall contains some major Search & Rescue facilities including RNAS Culdrose, the RNLI and the Coastguard global coordination centre at Falmouth.  In addition, the area is home to an outstanding area of wild country (Dartmoor), some of Britain’s most spectacular coastlines, and one of Britain’s most successful millennium projects (The Eden Project).
