Tell me About Cadets
"The Royal Canadian Army Cadets (RCAC) is a national Canadian youth program sponsored by the Canadian Armed Forces and the civilian Army Cadet League of Canada. Under the authority of the National Defence Act, the program is administered by the Canadian Armed Forces and funded through the Department of National Defence. The civilian partner of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets, the Army Cadet League of Canada, supports corps at a more local level in ways which the Canadian Armed Forces do not." - Wikipedia
Cadets meet weekly for "parades"
where they learn everything from
drill to survival skills, to navigation
and so much more! It is a great
way to meet new friends and learn
new skills. There is an emphasis
on becoming a leader and an active
and responsible member of the
Cadets go on Field Training Exercises ("FTX"),
where they go out in the field on a camping trip
where they get to put their skills to the test. Learn more here.
Cadets also have an opportunity to travel to summer camps for further training in places like the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, north of 60° in Whitehorse, Yukon and the Pacific coast in Comox, British Columbia - at no cost to the cadets! Returning cadets have gained confidence, skills and lifelong friends.
