Junior Camp: 10th – 12th May 2013
The first national junior camp was held at the national training centre TS Legion Wednesbury, 10th – 12th May 2013.
The juniors were very well behaved and a pleasure to be with, each and every one of them participated in every activity, some of which were canoeing, archery, camp craft, cooking in the field, preparing their own lunch, knots, map and compass work and creative art.
This was one of the best weekends I have spent during my time with cadets.

Welcome from the Captain of the Navy Training Corps
I would like to welcome you to the Navy Training Corps website and hope that you find it interesting and up to date. Since its formation in 2009 the Corps has gone from strength to strength.
2013 sees us approaching 20 Units and a very robust Marine Section which looks as if it will be 3 Companies strong by the end of the year. In Australia, an independent Maritime Training Corps is taking shape and is expanding, giving us both the opportunity for International exchanges and ideas.
Our Training Programme is expanding as more expertise comes onboard and our aim as always is for the training to be enjoyable for the Cadets and straightforward for the Staff to deliver. We have opted for a two tier system of Basic and Advanced Qualifications. We accept Instructor’s relevant qualifications and skills gained from other organisations. Staff courses are also run for those with no qualifications to enable them to obtain the skills needed to teach Cadets. Training is also organised around people’s availability.
We are continually being asked to open Units throughout the UK, but to answer all of these requests we need potential Staff and Committee Members to run them. Anyone interested should contact us and we will send them our ‘Setting up a Unit Pack’ which will answer a majority of the questions asked by interested people. Our policy is to make opening a new Unit as easy as possible, but at the same time without compromising Child Protection and Health and Safety issues and to give every support for it to succeed. Many of our Staff have decades of experience working within the Cadet Forces and this experience is invaluable when it comes to supporting New Units coming online.
We are proud to uphold the traditions of the Royal Navy and its training ethos. In line with this, the Corps this year will begin training to do Command Field Gunning, with the memories of the Royal Tournament and the spectacle and excitement that this brings.
We are pleased to announce that The Navy Training Corps now has an affiliation with its Australian Counterpart the Maritime Service Corps.
As an Independent Organisation we also need to bring in sufficient Funds to support our Units, and as everyone in the Corps is a volunteer every penny raised is spent for the benefit of the Cadets.
