Fieldcraft

Fieldcraft

As they progress in the AAFC, cadets take part in an increasingly challenging program of fieldcraft and survival, with Squadrons offering several bush camps every year.

They start by learning basic map reading, navigation and camouflage skills, but soon will know how to create a bush shelter from the natural environment, collect water and trap food.

More than that though, fieldcraft and survival camps give cadets a chance to lead their peers in challenging circumstances. Out in the bush is where they really make friends for life.
