Cadets Attend Summer Training

Many Cadets will spend their summers attending Summer Training at one of the various Cadet Camps across Canada. They are given a training bonus of $60 per week for cadets, and after a few years of training, the cadets will return as staff to instruct the new cadets with a full paid position at the camp. Food, lodging and activities are fully paid for. Cadets from BC can go to Alberthead, Cold Lake, Vernon or Whitehorse depending on their course selection.
