How to Join


The Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp appeals to teenagers craving exciting, outdoor activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. The hardcore, outdoor-oriented young person will love the challenge!

Army cadets develop their abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, canoeing, absailing, trekking, mountain biking, etc. As they get more experienced, some will be selected for parachuting, white-water rafting and glacier climbing. They will also learn to become outdoor leaders.

Army Cadets get involved in ceremonial military events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian heritage. They develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement in a hierarchical system that allows them to hone their leadership skills as they grow older and as they learn to care for younger cadets.

In addition to their specialty training, Army Cadets may become involved in other exciting activities like competitive, Olympic-style marksmanship and biathlon, sports competitions, drill training and competitions, music training and competitions, cultural outings, volunteer community support, etc.

If you see yourself participating in all these great adventures please come and visit us on our regular meeting night (Tuesday’s) at the CFS Leitrim Mess Hall between the hours of 18:30-21:00h.  You can join by filling out the proper documents with your parents' help and bringing them back the

next Tuesday night; or you may print out the document now and bring it with you at your first visit.
