Previous Activities

Our cadets are always up to something! View some of the recent activities Quinte cadets have been participating in.

A snow storm threw a wrench into normal training on December 15th however that did not stop some of our cadets, who lived close enough to the unit to be able to safely make it in, from coming down and learning a few important skills in the kitchen. The rest of the crew will appreciate their efforts in making cookies and desserts for our Winter Mess Dinner!
