Activities and Competitions
Upon joining the Hugh Baird CCF Contingent, cadets will follow an exciting syllabus, called the Army Proficiency Certificate (APC), which gets more challenging each year. APC training is designed to be practical, rather than classroom-based, whenever possible.
Cadets can expect to take part in many activities, including: annual camp, field days, day and night exercises, drill, leadership training, navigation, map work, orienteering, expedition training, shooting, blank firing, field craft, outdoor skills, survival skills, first aid, climbing, Duke of Edinburgh, visiting regular and reserve units, communications, observation and many other individual service based activities and competitions.
The cadets also get the chance to take part in weekend activities, including camps and courses where a huge range of activities take place. The aim is to empower cadets with responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, respect, resilience and a sense of public service.
