More than 200 Cambridgeshire Army Cadets, including several from the Fenland area, took part in an action-packed programme of events during their nine-day annual camp at the River Lune on the edge of the Lake District.

The youngsters, aged

12-18, spent nights spent under canvas and the main theme of the camp was adventurous training, with cadets and adults trying to master kayaking, mountain biking, hill walking, climbing, abseiling and taking part in expeditions exploring craggy peaks, tricky pikes, rambling fells and remote lakes.

The overall training programme, which included a day trip to Blackpool pleasure beach and swimming competitions held at the University pool, Lancaster, was developed by county training officer Major Mark Knight, from Wisbech St Mary.
