I first want to start of by welcoming back all the cadets who were away at a Cadet Training Centre. I am looking forward to hearing all about it!!!
As our first order of business - I would like to extend an invite to all 2951 Cadets and Parents to a welcome back BBQ. Details below. Dress will be civilian attire, however please bring any uniform parts that no longer fit so that we can have some time to get cadets measured and new uniforms ordered.
There is no cost for the BBQ but it is requested that only cadets and their parents attend. We request that parents please confirm the number of attendance for their family prior to 31 August 18 by commenting below.
This will be an opportunity for all of us to get together, have some laughs, share some stories as well as have some burgers and dogs!
It is my intent to have a brief meeting following the BBQ portion with all cadets and parents (seperately) to discuss this upcoming training year.
I am super pumped about getting back into the swing of things! Enjoy your couple of weeks off & I look forward to seeing you all on September 4th!!!
2951 CFS Leitrim RCACC
Do you enjoy? Team sports, camping, hiking, biking, canoeing, survival training, marksmanship, military drill, first aid, team work, leadership and of course fun!
The Cadet Program is for youth aged 12 to 18. We meet every Tuesday nights between the hours of 18h45-21h15 from September to June at the CFS Leitrim Station Mess Hall.
It is sponsored by the Canadian Forces and three civilian organizations: the Navy League, Army Cadet League and Air Cadet League.The aim of the Program is to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership and promote physical fitness. They are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. It helps them develop self-confidence, self-esteem and teamwork. Other benefits may include high school credits, scholarships and training in public speaking.
There is no enrolment or registration fees, basic activities of the Cadet Program are covered. Uniforms are provided at no charge and cadets selected for cadet camps attend at no cost. The Cadets are supervised by members of the Canadian Forces, most of whom are among the 7500 members of the Canadian Forces Reserve Cadet Instructor Cadre (CIC). Its members are specially trained part-time members of the Canadian Forces who dedicate their spare time to the development of Canada’s youth.
THE EXISTING HISTORY OF OUR FACILITY AND CORPS
2951 RCACC was formed in 1977. Initially, the Corps was affiliated to the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa (militia unit) and was composed of three platoons. Two that paraded at the Greely Legion and a third satellite platoon. In 1982, the satellite platoon, that drew its cadets from the Manotick and Nepean are, formed its own Corps. In 1989, the 2951 RCACC became affiliated with Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Leitrim, who has been supporting the Corps ever since…
