1129 Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps - Haliburton
The Ultimate Challenge!
The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers (Ages 12-18) craving exciting outdoor activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. The hard-core outdoor oriented will love the challenge!
Army cadets develop abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping, survival skills, mountain biking, rock climbing, music & marksmanship. As they get more experienced, some cadets will be selected for parachuting & national expedition programs. 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 they
learn to care for younger cadets.
In addition to their specialty training, Army Cadets may become involved in other exciting activities like competitive marksmanship and biathlon competitions, cultural outings & volunteer community support.
Canada represents the best playground for teenagers interested in the outdoors. We are the organization of choice for teens interested in getting out of the classroom to explore the planet the way it should be.
