The Royal Canadian Army Cadets is a free program that runs during the school year. We teach numerous skills not taught in regular classrooms such as map and compass, survival techniques, and leadership training. Although distinctly operating in a military setting, what is taught easily translates to everyday life and our cadet corps is lucky to have access to a wonderful outdoor and indoor training space as well as excellent instructors all located at 307 DeNiverville Private in Ottawa.
Everything from the uniforms and regular training to the field trips, specialised training (marksmanship and biathlon teams) and summer camps are completely free of charge. This is important because it allows all youth access to special opportunities and knowledge regardless of their family budget.
