Sainik School Bijapur, under the aegis of National Cadets Corps, organised Annual training Camp for 280 cadets in the School Campus. Cadets of Class IX, XI and XII participated with zeal enthusiasm. We had recreated the army life for the participating cadets and staff. We have four huge Adilshahi era wells, Hanuman temple and lot of shade to undertake multifarious training activities. Many yielding mango trees were a great attraction to our young and dynamic cadets. The firing range, big part of the camp was nearby. Newly acquired Tata 207 open vehicle conveyed things like dharies , mats ,drinking water, arms and ammunition for firing and also food from the cooking point to the camp site.
The serene, tranquil, peaceful and natural setting of the Mango Grove had enhanced the willingness to participate among the cadets. The wide and ancient wells, the plain and even surface for pitching of tents, the canopy of tall mango trees, the fields measuring 60 acres filled with green Jowar crops surrounding the camp site, the vicinity of Shree Lord Hanuman temple, made the camp area all the more inspiring. A good beginning was made for a ten day long NCC camp starting 04 April 2012. The opening address was delivered by Camp Commandant Lt Col Rishi Raj Singh on 04 April 2012 at the Mango Grove area. He gave a description of the camp training programme schedule.

Verities of menu items catering to taste buds of cadets were served during breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the camp period. The food was hygienic and kept the cadets well nourished and energised.
Forty cadets lived in the tents each day both from the JD and the SD on rotation to experience a living with minimum of comforts. This has inculcated among the cadets simple living, collaboration, adjustment and habits of sharing.
