Preparations making progress for 2018 Camp


The Aerospace Camp team gathered at a meeting at the RAF Club.

Plans for the 2018 National Aerospace Camp are making great progress, according to the Camp’s executive team.

Speaking following a planning meeting held at the RAF Club in London, the camp’s Chief of Staff said he was “really impressed” with the steps being made.

Sqn Ldr Tom Hunt said: “The whole team has been working incredibly hard over the past few months to develop our plans for the camp.

“The admin team have done an excellent job handling the cadet nominations, while the subject leads are already producing materials and activities ready for August.

“We’ve been working hard with industry partners too, the camp is coming on in leaps and bounds.”

Wg Cdr Mark Brayford, Camp Commandant, explained that “the amount of work required can be a bit daunting”.

“I’ve almost lost count of the number of different meetings, conference calls and email chains we’ve used to put the 2018 camp together!”

The camp staff have gathered at four separate meetings and five teleconferences since the start of the year, with more to come in the following months.

“It’s part of the challenge of running a truly national camp; we’ve got expert staff up and down the country, so linking them up can be a challenge,” added Wg Cdr Brayford.

The selected cadets have all now been notified that they are attending, and the camp staff are now ‘on the run in’ to the 2018 Camp.

Nearly 500 cadets from up and down the country will converge on RAF Syerston in late August for this year’s RAF100 camp.
