Canadian Forces Base Borden is one of Canada's biggest training facilities for the Armed Forces.

Today the base showed off its premier program for army, navy and air cadets at the Blackdown Cadet Summer Training Centre.

In total, 800 cadets were out at the Blackdown training centre learning skills that will come in handy very soon.

The "sundown ceremony" is set to take place at the end of August, at which the cadets will perform a music and drill program showing off what they learned.
