Community comment by Capt. Miken Rienks, Revelstoke Cadets

If you’re 12 or older, want to meet friends and try something new, then we have just the thing for you.

By joining Army Cadets, you are saying YES! to fun activities and exciting challenges supervised by trained adult leaders. Cadets form a national organization whose purpose is to develop in youth the attributes of leadership, engaged and active citizenship and promote physical fitness.

Training will include trekking and orienteering, marksmanship, leadership training, summer camps, first-aid training, international trips, camping, music, team sports, ceremonial parades, friendly competition and public exchange.

There are no registration fees, dues or costs for the uniforms or the basic cadet program.

The skills you develop at cadets will benefit you with your schoolwork. You will be more organized, you will be better able to focus and you will learn to work in a team. You will take part in activities within your local community.

These activities are designed to help you become more self-confident, to develop your leadership skills, to improve your physical fitness and communication skills and teach you self-discipline through challenging training.

With more than 70,000 cadets across Canada, we are an organization with a proud history. Many former cadets say that the cadet program gave them a head start in their successful careers.

The cadet program is not a recruiting vehicle for the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets is a great way to find out more about Canada, make friends and develop new skills that will be with you for life, no matter what career you choose.
