Summer training camp for sea cadet corps
Kochi, Apr 27 (UNI) The Kochi Unit of Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), under the aegis of the Southern Naval Command, will conduct a ten-day summer training camp at Seamanship School in the naval base here from May one.
Nearly 150 cadets, including both boys and girls, in the age group of 8-15 years, hailing from various schools in and around Kochi, will attend the camp.
