CORNER BROOK, N.L. —

Two members of the 184 Curling Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps in Corner Brook are exploring two very different paths at cadet training centres in British Columbia and Nova Scotia this summer.
Cameron Payne is on a unique shipwright course at the HMCS Quadra Cadet Training Centre in Comox, B.C.
HMCS Quadra is the only cadet training centre offering the course. The course provides challenges and leadership opportunities in addition to learning about fibre glassing, woodworking and other various skills including boat repair and maintenance.
This summer is Payne’s fourth and last summer as a course cadet. Next year he’s planning to apply as a staff cadet and hopes to teach other cadets the skills he’s learned during his time as a cadet. 
“The cadet program is so rewarding and it allows you to meet a diverse group of people from all across the country,” he said in a press release from the centre.
Dawson McIntosh is a staff cadet for cadet music courses at the Cadet Training Center HMCS Acadia in Cornwallis, N.S. 
HMCS Acadia is the premiere cadet training centre for sea cadet nautical and sail training and music training for sea, army and air cadets. 
In addition to supervising the cadets on music courses, he’s teaching music theory, percussion skills and playing in one of HMCS Acadia’s bands. 
McIntosh is looking forward to teaching other cadets while working with friends from across Atlantic Canada that he has made through the cadet program.
