Each year our cadets take part in at least one FTX (Field Training eXercises) the 2019 Spring FTX was held on the weekend of May 25th at the Rockwood Conservation Area. Our FTX got off to a bit of a soggy start with some heavy rain at times, but a good time was had by all.

Highlights of the FTX were setting up a camp and tents following military standards, learning about and creating snares, orienteering (using map and compass to find specific places), learning survival techniques and how to build fires even without matches, and much more, along with spending time with friends and camping outdoors.
