(CNS): The Cayman Islands Cadet Corps welcomed eleven other young would-be soldiers from the Australian Cadet Corps and from the Canadian Cadet Force this week. The international peers came for a two-day camping exercise, which started on Monday 7, July and saw ten local cadets train alongside the five youngsters from Canada and six all the way from Australia. The camp began at Bonnieview Island in Prospect, where cadets participated in field exercises including waterman-ship training, and anti-ambush training, as well as learning river crossing and other survival skills, officials said in a release.

The exercise ended the following day at the Cayman Islands Fire Service’s training ground where the cadets did exercises in rappelling. These were led by Captain Wilston Bennett, Camp Commandant and leader of the Cayman Brac branch of the Corps.
