Westmount, Quebec – 29 March 2018: Cadet Corps 2862 certainly has had a busy training year thus far! Besides their usual training (they train at the RMR Armory every Friday evening from 18:30 to 21:30, from September to June, and they have optional activities such as marching band, marksmanship and sports on Thursday evenings and weekends), they have organized many extra activities such as visits to Ottawa, field survival training, sports competitions, and more! Enjoy the photos below from the training year:

Cadets is a federally-sponsored program for young Canadians ages 12 to 19 who are interested in participating in a variety of challenging and rewarding activities. There are no registration fees, dues or cost for the uniforms, the basic Cadet Program or summer training programs. Army cadets receive a parade uniform, as well as a field training uniform (combats, as we spend a lot of time outdoors learning survival, hiking and bushcraft skills).  As an army cadet, you have opportunities to apply for regional, provincial, national and international expeditions that include trekking, orienteering, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, horseback riding, dog sledding, and many other activities.  Army cadets can apply for international cadet exchange programs in the summer, as well as the Canadian Forces Basic Parachutist course, in addition to local summer training programs.  Senior cadets can apply for summer employment as instructors and support staff at cadet summer camps.
