The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeals to teenagers craving exciting activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. The outdoor-oriented will love the challenge! Army Cadets focus on adventure training activities such as camping, canoeing, hiking, abseiling, and regional or international expeditions.
Army Cadets develop abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, canoeing, abseiling, trekking, mountain biking, etc. Cadet outdoor leaders may be selected for parachuting, white-water rafting and glacier climbing.
In addition to their specialty training, Army Cadets may become involved in other exciting activities like competitive Olympic-style marksmanship and biathlon, sports competitions, music training and competitions, cultural outings, volunteer and community support, etc.
The Program embraces Canada’s multiculturalism and offers young Canadians aged 12-18 challenging and adventurous activities that embrace and promote citizenship and community involvement.
Cadets are involved in ceremonial military events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect with their Canadian heritage. They develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement in a hierarchical system where leadership skills are honed as they grow older and learn to care for younger cadets.
