Our visit to Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is a training camp for training soldiers but has different activities to teach you about health and safety skills. There are 13 different life activities to teach children how to survive life.  

When we went to crucial crew on Tuesday 11th June. We did lots of
different scenarios like go in a smoke tent, Alcohol room, Abandoned dogs room and lots more. The room I am telling you about is the Alcohol room. It taught us things about when we drink alcohol it ruins' our body inside of us. Like it damages the organs. The lady who taught us proved we could have nice drinks without alcohol. The amount that adults should have is woman 2-3 men 3-4 units a day.

In Crucial Crew  we did many fun things such as the smoke tent the drug tent and many more . I’m here to tell you about the drug tent there was a 16 year old women who offered us a party with our friends tonight . Most of us said ok but somewhere sensible and didn’t take the offer. we were offered cocaine cigerates  these are our pics. By Lewis

:The smoke tent!
Yesterday when we went to crucial crew, one of the activities was the smoke tent…
Before we entered we were all very nervous, (we thought we were going to choke!)
But then the instructor reassured us, that it was sugar smoke!
 The main purpose was to teach us how to escape during a fire.
Do YOU have a fire alarm?
Do YOU have an escape route?
Do YOU know how to survive a fire?
Well here’s how…
1) Stay low!
2) Don’t stop to collect personal belongings!
3) Don’t panic
4) And get out as soon as possible!

At the end of the day, we were all given a goodie bag and the famous Crucial Crew T-shirt each!


  1. What a fantastic day we all had! You all certainly learned a lot of life skills here. I think some of the scenarios gave you food for thought. I wonder what your favourite scenario was and why?
