Hello again,
After reading the posts about Camp I wonder if some of you might be able to post some useful information to the borad for other Cadets who haven't been to camp yet and may not know what to expect. It could be things from what to bring/not to bring, to some tips and tricks to get through the summer while having a great time.
When I went to Camp in Argonaut, CFB Gagetown, it was an eye opener to arrive on the first day.
My suggestion for things to bring are:
Spare capbadges if you can get any. They are quite popular for trading. Comfortable shoes or sandles for off times. If you like to read lots of books. While there is lots to do it is also nice to just be alone for a while.

Just my 2 cents worth. [Sniper]

Don't bring civvies! The staff will probably take them away when you have your kit inspection.

Another tip - SLEEP WHENEVER YOU CAN!!!

I am really exhausted right now and its only 2100!

Avoid the MIR, only if you want to wait a loooong time or want to miss half your training day. If you are sick, wait a day, if you aren't feeling well the next, if you are up to it, then go.

Bring cap brasses, you can get alot of money for them depending on the one. Only if you have extras! I will never sell mine!

Enjoy yourself!

I thought I had met you SOF! I ran into this guy from Hotel who was in the same corps as this girl i was talking to in Golf. She is from 2310 Sault Ste. Marie.

The guy in her corps was known as Kyle.

right now I am on M&XD; for an either torn or badly pulled muscle on my left side.

NEVER COMISSO!

Go look at the Argyll's cap brass, I could get alot of money for it unlike your's

(for those wondering, I recruited another member of Kilo Coy, CL PLatoon, Steve Comisso from up north)

By the way Irish, let's keep the arguements at camp, that isn't what this message board is for.
