Revelstoke cadet Jesse Reid has earned the distinction of top cadet in his platoon at summer camp at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Cadet Reid is a member of 2458 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Revelstoke, BC.

Cadets enrolled in band courses focus almost exclusively on music training to improve their skills with their chosen instruments. Cadet Reid attended the three-week Basic Band Course where cadets were taught how to assemble, disassemble, maintain and store their instruments, how to apply music theory and play as members of an ensemble and to drill as a member of a band. Cadets also had time for fitness training and testing, sports and practice on the abseil tower.

During the summer, more than 1,100 Army, Sea, and Air Cadets from western Canada will spend up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley training centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.
