As part of the final exercise, a special Open Day was hosted on Friday, at the Saddlers High School, which is the site of this year’s camp, to showcase some of the new techniques, skills and talents that have been picked up by the young recruits and cadets.
Both full time cadets and those recruits who were in training were given the opportunity to present various drill displays, field craft activities and skills in the use of their weapons.
Over 60 parents and family members from both Nevis and also St. Kitts were invited to witness the demonstrations put on by their sons and daughters. The excellent performances of the cadets/recruits were well received by the audience, many of whom expressed their delight in the improved abilities of the participants.
According to one of the senior facilitators, though it was a first time experience for most of the recruits, they were able to perform at credible levels and in the end, they have all benefitted tremendously from the 2 weeks that they spent at the camp.
Friday’s drill display and presentation were all held under the command of Cadet Sgt. Kai’Jana Henry, under the guidance of Captain Kayode Sutton, Warrant Officer Brian Mills from St. Kitts and Warrant Officer Hanley, from Nevis.
Reports indicate that almost sixty recruits and cadets took part in the 2012 camp.
