Yeah its Friday today the Cadets are having a day to catch up and on some last minute things on their courses. All the different groups got to go out in the boats and have a great ride and from what we have been told all have had a great time.
Tomorrow morning Cadets will be up and getting ready for their parents to come and pick them up. Closing ceremonies will be starting at 10 am on Saturday and Cadets will be leaving camp by 12:00 or earlier if possible.
The CO would like to personally thank all of the staff and cadets for a great week.
Another great day here at camp the weather once again was great for all of our activities. Today we had a visit from the Navy League of Canada National President Mr. Matt Waterman. He was given a tour of the entire camp ground and was very impressed with the entire site and operations of the camp.
We also had a visit from LCdr (NL) Justin Schmidt-Clever who did the PCOC (Powerboat) course test for all of the cadets. We are very happy to say all that took the test cadets and staff have passed their PCOC course and will be getting their PCOC card in about 1 month
Yeah it is Wednesday half way through camp. Today we had a visit from the President of Navy League Ontario Division Mr. Larry McGuin. Mr. McGuin presented Ontario Division Challenge coins to Cdr (NL) Drury, CPO1 Rollko, CPO1 Craig, Mrs. Antia Gault, LT (NL) Woznow, and LT (NL) Schroeder. Congratulations to all of the Recipients.

Today the cadets got to start working on their courses. The weather was great all day today there was a chance of a storm going through around 6 pm however it did not hit us and everything went great.
We have created a photo gallery for everyone to check out. We have uploaded all the pictures taken from the opening ceremonies there. We will be adding more through out the week so keep checking it.
So far the only complaint we have is that the indigenous life (mosquitoes) are bad this year.
