Overseas Camps 2009

We've just been notified of two overseas camp opportunities open to Warwickshire and Birmingham Cadets this year. To be eligible for an overseas camp, a cadet must be 15 or older at the start of the camp, be physically fit, have attended at least 1 UK camp, hold a European Health Insurance Card and valid passport (with at least 6 months remaining from the return date), and have attained the classification of Leading Cadet.

RAF Rheindahlen, Germany

The Wing has 6 male and 2 female places for camp at RAF Rheindahlen, 22-29 Jul 09. Travel will be by air, with Wing providing transport to the UK air head, Heathrow.

Airfare, accident insurance, messing and camp levy is £155. A further £110 is recommended for other expenses and spending money.

The closing date for nominations is 8 Mar 09

RAF Akrotiti, Cyprus

Central and East Region have been allocated a Cyprus camp for the period 22-31 Oct 09. This camp is known for lots of sun, water, civvies and of course - a flight in the helicopters of the 'real' 84 Squadron!

Costs for this camp are estimated to be £275 for airfare, insurance, messing and camp levy. Suggested spending money is £150.

The closing date for nominations is 22 Mar 09

Financial Assistance

As with all corps activities, the Squadron Civilian Committee has the facility to provide financial assistance to those families who would not otherwise be able to take advantage of opportunities such as these camps. If you would like to apply for a grant, please come in to the Squadron and speak to the Commanding Officer.
