Vacation education at cadet camp
More than 400 young people spent part of their school vacation at Cadet Force Camp Costello at the Carapichiama West Secondary School. The camp opened on July 14 and ended on July 28. Public affairs officer of the Trinidad and Tobago Cadet Force (TTCF), captain Randal Roberts said the camp was named after Major Brendon Castello and was under the command of major Cowen Bain. The camp was used to certify cadets, who got an opportunity to participate in a mock military tactical exercise. “We had support from the T&T Defense Force in this exercise,” Roberts said. The cadets also participated in a two-day survival course and used Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to navigate. In addition, they participated in jungle skills survival and rescue exercises, learned valuable cooking skills from TTCF chef WI Shazad Khan.
