The squadron goes out for multiple weekend Field Training Exercises (FTXs) throughout the training year. These FTXs are conducted at Blue Springs Scout Reserve and Camp Sidrabene.
At an FTX, our cadets undergo training on topics such as: survival psychology, building shelters, range training, first aid, orienteering, radio communication, etc. They also build on their teamwork and leadership skills.
Despite having to eat military field ration packs, living in claustrophobic tents, waking up early on the weekend, and occasionally suffering through poor weather conditions, these FTXs are an incredible experience for our cadets and they come back wanting to do all over again.
