Camps

Squadron Level Camps

Our squadrons runs two annual camps; Easter and Christmas.Throughout easter camp, you will be in constant competition with the other flight, trying to gain as many points as possible through activities and other things. The points will then all count towards the final day where there is usually an egg hunt. During christmas camps, you may go bowling, the pantomime and also go back the the ssqn where you will play games, watch movies and get food.
