Summer training is commonly referred to as summer camp by cadets. The 23 Cadet Summer Training Centres across Canada offer a variety of exciting and dynamic training courses. Some are located in unique settings such as the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, north of 60° in Whitehorse, Yukon and the Pacific coast in Comox, British Columbia. Others offer specialized training. Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec, for example, offers an introduction to aerospace course and the Centre of Excellence for Marksmanship in Ottawa, Ontario offers advanced training in marksmanship.
Regardless of where a cadet goes for summer training, he or she is certain to have a fun and rewarding summer. Summer training offers, for some, an opportunity to travel internationally while for others it means meeting new people from across Canada while learning.
“I made so many new friends from all across Canada at summer camp. It is nice toknow that no matter where I travel in our country, I have a friend that lives there.”
– Air Cadet Skylar Shaunessy, Alberta
