2018 Summer Camp Information

It almost that time of year again! Cadets will soon be heading off to summer training. To help prepare, there will be a parent information session for the parents (cadets are also welcome) of any cadets selected for summer camp or who have applied and are still waiting for a position. Copies of camp related documents are attached below. The information session will take place on Tuesday, June 12th at 7:00pm. Please ensure that you have valid ID in order to enter the Paddon building.

Please note, we require that all outstanding summer camp offers be returned by the 12th so that we can confirm your cadet’s attendance on the course they have been selected for.

For the cadets still awaiting selection – we are getting requests on a daily basis for updates, and we kindly ask for your patience. As soon as information is made known to us, we will pass it along to you as quickly as possible. Capt Clay is in daily communication with the NL Cadet Detachment regarding summer camp positions, and every effort is being made to secure as many positions as possible. We have no way to predict when a selection may be made – selections have been known to occur right up to the start date for a course.

Thank you, and please feel free to contact us should you have any questions!
