A vast area of the UK is filled with beautiful scenery and landmarks that should be made the most of. The Air Training Corps will organise several walks ranging from one day up to a week. Within the South West of England and Wales are Dartmoor and Brecon Beacon Nation Parks but to name a few. These walks can be used for the Expedition section of The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Hill Walking in the Lake District
Rock Climbing and Abseiling
There are many great locations to participate in either Rock Climbing or Abseiling, and even the climbing wall equipment can be used within the ATC. Both of these activities provide a challenging experience for cadets and staff alike.
Canoeing and Kayaking
Canoeing in the River Teign
Due to the great location Torquay is in there is the opportunity to go both canoeing (open) and kayaking (closed) in both open water and rivers. Cadets can work towards skill qualifications and up to instructor level.
