On behalf of the staff of the unit, we hope you and your family are doing well! The staff continues to meet and develop new ways to keep the cadets engaged.
Saying that, we have developed “3016 SCAVENGER HUNT” to get the cadets outside and engaged in activity. This will work on navigation skills, fitness, enjoying the outdoors, while having some fun.
Instructions to be issued through the website this afternoon for a start time of Saturday until Tuesday at 1830hrs. If you haven’t registered through the website please do so ASAP.
As always, if you have any questions please let me know.B. Wood, CD
