Summer training for Cadets

From: National Defence

More than 20,000 Cadets attend summer courses at one of our 22 training centres located across Canada. From the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Rocky Mountains and everywhere in between, Cadet Training Centres offer a wide variety of activities and training. Summer courses can be from 1 to 6 weeks long, allowing cadets to experience more in-depth studies and experiences in the area in which they are selected.

Some training centres involve all 3 cadet elements (Sea, Army and Air) allowing for a wholesome learning experience and a unique opportunity to work together, learn from each other and meet new friends in a fun, challenging and safe environment. Those are the experiences you will never forget!

During summer training, you will receive a training allocation and earn a weekly training bonus of $10.00 per day, up to $60.00 per week. You will also have access to exciting and dynamic training courses and quality instruction given by skilled and knowledgeable instructors. Some Cadets even get the opportunity to participate in international exchanges. Most importantly, you will experience a rewarding summer.

Selection for summer training

Cadets are selected to attend summer training based on their attendance, behaviour, and other attributes that they’ve demonstrated throughout the cadet training year. If you want to apply and be considered for summer training, you must have been a Cadet prior to March 31.

If you are selected to participate in summer training you will have the chance to travel to a training centre in your region. If you are selected for a specialized course or your region does not offer a particular program you may have the opportunity to travel to another training centre located in a different province or territory where you will meet other cadets from all over Canada.
