Four local Air Cadets recently returned from a two week training course at Albert Head Cadet Training Centre located near Victoria, BC.

The cadets worked on a multitude of skills including drills, first aid, barracks upkeep, making a bed with “hospital corners” and a survival field training exercise. The 12 to 18 year olds also worked on physical fitness. There was also a little time for fun and the cadets got to tour Victoria and the Parliament Building. The cadets were required to remain in uniform, even while travelling.

Castlegar cadet Deanna Kaiser reported it was a great experience and opportunity to meet new friends.

“There was a lot to do, we were kept busy all the time with classes, drills, ceremonies, sports and competitions. I am looking forward to going back next year,” he said.
