What you can expect on the day of the Commando experience at Hever Castle

Having parked up you will enter the Commando encampment.  It won't take you long to feel ingrained in the world of Commando as you report for duty and make a swift transformation from being a "civi" into a full dressed Commando recruit with camouflaged cream and transfer Commando tattoo expertly applied.

As you contemplate the challenge ahead you can see the final obstacle of a 12-foot wall in the distance. There isn’t much time to think though as you start the Commando warm up, led by Commander in Chief Motivator, Bart. All trainees will get their orders on the Castle loggia before heading off on the course.

    Commando Kit

    All recruits (participants) will get the gear to prepare them for the challenge; Commando t-shirt and camo paint on arrival. We recommend you wear a long-sleeved wicking top and some form of leggings or combat trousers to cover your legs and arms.  Trail shoes or military style boots are strongly recommended for the rough terrain ahead.
