100% Free to Join
The are no registration costs, and the program is free to join. Army Cadets is a youth adventure program facilitated through the Government of Canada, Department of National Defence (DND), to promote youth involvement within the community. The program is funded in part by DND, and also by money raised throughout the year by the cadets and the Parents Support Committee.
DND supplies two different uniforms (dress and field training). They fund three weekend exercises, and six single day training activities. Any activities above these are paid for by funds raised, and/or cadets paying themselves. We encourage every cadet to participate & if a cadet is unable to afford an activity, subsidy may be provided to ensure the cadet doesn’t miss out. If you require subsidy for an activity, please bring it to the attention of the Commanding Officer.
The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers craving exciting outdoor activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested.
