The are no registration costs, and the program is free to join.  Army Cadets is a youth adventure program facilitated through the Government of Canada, Department of National Defence (DND), to promote youth involvement within the community. The program is funded in part by DND, and also by money raised throughout the year by the cadets and the Parents Support Committee.

DND supplies two different uniforms (dress and field training). They fund three-weekend exercises and six single-day training activities.  Any activities above these are paid for by funds raised, and/or cadets paying themselves.  We encourage every cadet to participate & if a cadet is unable to afford an activity, a subsidy may be provided to ensure the cadet doesn’t miss out.  If you require a subsidy for an activity, please bring it to the attention of the Commanding Officer.

Uniform Looking Good?

With only wearing your #1 dress once a month, there is no excuse to not have your uniform in tip-top shape. Also ensure your field dress is free from wrinkles.

It is the easiest, and most comfortable uniform you can wear. Put it in the dryer for 5 minutes on high to de-wrinkle it. Make sure you hang it up after every parade night

Interested in Band?

If you play an instrument of any kind or would be interested in learning, talk to Capt. Turner.

No Phone Calls

If you are expecting an important phone call, you must let the duty NCO or DUTY Officer know. Occasional exceptions will be on a case by case basis
