Summer camps are in full swing and a youth from Summerland will experience a summer of adventure and challenge as part of the Fitness and Sport Instructors Course at the Cold Lake Cadet Training Centre.
Throughout the regular cadet training year from September to June, Bryanna Johnston is a cadet at 909 Peregrine Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Westbank.
This summer she is attending the Fitness and Sport Instructors Course in Cold Lake.
During her time at the centre, Johnston will learn sports, fitness, and instructional skills such as how to teach proper stretching, proper nutrition, and how to run sports tabloids. She is with a group of her peers from across western and northern Canada, and is taught by staff cadets while being mentored by Cadet Instructor Cadre Officers; adults who specialize in working with young people to implement the cadet program.
Johnston began summer camp in late June and will return home mid-August.
The Cadet Program is a national youth development program which aims to grow in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness, and stimulate the interest of youth in the sea, land and air activities of the Canadian Forces.
