Pt. Jawaharlal Lal Nehru rightly said ‘‘NCC is the nursery of Indian Armed forces’’. All the Cadets from class 9th of Sainik School Ambikapur went to Combined Annual Training Camp to get trained with basic NCC training on 30th January 2012. This camp was held at Korba in a stadium. It was noon when we reached the camp. First day was an introduction day for us. More than 600 cadets from 15 different schools of Chhattisgarh had come to attend the camp. On the second day, Camp Commandant Colonel Anil S Pote gave opening address which filled all of us with energy and enthusiasm. Those ten days were learning for us and we learnt a lot. Special classes were arranged for us focusing on traffic rules, fire fighting, first-aid etc. The best class which I liked was fire fighting. A team of fire brigade from Korba came and demonstrated the different types of fire and means of fire fighting equipments. Qualified doctors from Apollo Hospital, Bilaspur came and given tips on first-aid. Another best part of the camp were guns. We became more familiar with LMGs and SLRs and learnt firing. Cdt. Vivek Aditya Singh stood first in firing competition and Cdt. Avneendra Singh stood second in the whole Junior Division. Cdt.Alekh Jaiswal and I also brought glory to the school by winning the debate competition. Our school stood first in line area competition and drill competition too. On 8th February we returned back. All of us enjoyed every second spent in the camp.

We all were eagerly waiting for our turn and bolt from the blue it is been informed to us that we all are shortly going to have mesmerise the very incidents and encounters which we all are hearing for the last eight months.
Our journey begins from SSAP at 0730 hrs to Korba by bus. The journey was joyful and full of enjoyment. We reached Korba at 1:00 pm .We kept our luggage and then went for lunch. That day we just had our game followed by dinner. Next day we had P.T and opening address by camp commandant Col. N.S. Rawat. After that we had drill period in which we learnt various skills associated with drill. We were also introduced to.22mm Rifle, Map Reading and use of Compass. After lunch we all attended a lecture on Our Environment. On third day it was a same routine as we were told about map that day. The following days have shown many actions such as self defence technique, using firing extinguisher etc.

First it was extempore and I was declared the winner, next day it was volley ball this competition was also win by Alpha Company (SSAP).

Our NCC instructor Subedar Jitendra Singh was accompanying us. At about 6 PM, we had roll call in which commanding officer of the camp B K Pandey introduced himself.
