Members of 2881 Queen’s Own Rifles Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps,
As we move forward modernizing the current Cadet Program, staff from across the country have been formulating new ways to deliver engaging training for cadets and adult leaders in a virtual environment.
Exploring virtual training delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed the Cadet Program to move forward in new ways, taking advantage of technology. From virtual seminars to health and fitness challenges, cadets are encouraged to remain active and engaged as we move into the summer period.
This summer three Virtual Cadet Training Centres will help deliver exciting challenges and activities for cadets. Throughout the summer they will offer different opportunities for cadets to further develop both personal and cadet skills in a new, virtual setting.
Cadets will have the opportunities to participate in flexible, voluntary training opportunities either independently at their own pace or in facilitated sessions. This summer will be about engagement and flexibility while continue to focus on the cadet experience.
5-weeks of summer training activities
Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, for about two to three hours per week. The choice of the 22 activities is the same as those offered on the “Cadet Activities” portal on the Extranet and posted on the Cadet Learning Facebook page, and detailed in this course schedule: Summer 2020 Virtual Cadet Training Centre Course Schedule.
Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. In order for cadets to register for these activities, Cadets will need to send an email to their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) with the following information:
