The Royal Canadian Army Cadets (RCAC) has over 20,000 army cadets in more than several hundred “corps” (units) all over the country and is one of the biggest and best clubs around. When it comes to fun, friendship, and adventure, it’s hard to find anything that beats the Army Cadets.
Become an Army Cadet and you’ll be spending your spare time taking part in adventurous activities like marksmanship training, and outdoor expeditions. There will also be plenty of chance to play all your favourite sports because the Cadet program has competitions for across the regional, provincial, and national level.
If you continue with the program, you’ll eventually become a senior ranking cadet. Every year, some of our top senior cadets get a chance to participate in high-level expeditions around the globe. Our destinations in the past few years included Morocco, Australia, Costa Rica, South Korea, Italy, Mont-Blanc, the France/Spain Pyrenees, New Zealand, the Canadian Rockies, the Northwest Territories, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Whatever the destination, cadets will find the ultimate challenge awaiting them!
Doesn’t that beat sitting in front of a TV or computer alone in your room?
