“International Camp 2008 will be a successful venture having received the full support and backing of the Prime Minister and the Government,” Lewis stated.

Minister of Education, Giryln Miguel expressed her satisfaction with the organization for their achievements over the years and said this it is the second time that this country will be hosting the event, as the first camp as was held in 1996 at North Union.

“This camp will further demonstrate our commitment to the expansion of the Cadet Corps and would also act as a motivator to our officers,” Miguel stated. (SB)
