Challenger Troop have been running a challenge course with sandbag filling for our WW1 Gun emplacement along with our Laser Combat Trench Warfare!
We asked Parents and Young people this "What did you think about today’s activities provided by challenger Troop?"
I thought todays activities were fantastic! There are well organised, team based activities that allowed our children to be competitive and challenged.
I would like to see more availability in different areas.
Funny and enjoyable! It has been great to see children interacting with each other.
Some quotes from our young people:
Ellie Brown, Aged 9
I thought today has been fun and exciting!
Niamh McCarthy, Aged 9
Today has been excellent and encouraging!
Eleanor Donne, Aged 9
Exciting, Fun and encouraging!
Charlie Hunt (Sharky), Aged 9
Very Inspiring! Was great to see how soldiers act.

The day was challenging and extremely fun! I would definitely consider doing it again.
ALL PARENTS HAVE GIVEN PERMISSION FOR QUOTES AND PHOTO’S TO BE USED WHERE NEEDED.
- Very moving awards ceremony this afternoon for our Summer Bootcamp participants from West Kent who have been away from home all week on a high intensity residential programme with us. Despite it being "really hard", they all said that they enjoyed it. They were clearly proud of all that they had achieved and were looking forward to telling their friends and family all about it. Well done to you all.2 weeks ago
