295 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…
