Summer Camp Joining Instructions

An information session will be held prior to the end of the training year once we have confirmation for all cadets and parents attending summer camps. The information session for Summer 2020 was held: Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at 1930hrs. Here was the presentation from this year: 

Cadets going to camp for the first time will be attending the 5-day Familiarization Course, unless they are 14 years of age, then they can attend one of the 3-week courses. Ensure you read the course requirements at the bottom of each course, as described in the course pamphlet. The star level refers to the level attained as of the end of the current training year. 


Cadets are to arrive in C3E uniform (tunic, uniform pants, belt, beret, ribbons and parade boots). If you do not have PT gear you will be issued them at camp. 

All Cadets MUST be in possession of a VALID heath card which will not expire during their time at camp. If you have applied for a new one the paperwork provided will be sufficient. Don't forget your transportation form and your signed code of conduct. 

If for any reason your Cadet is unable to attend camp, please notify us (through REMIND) immediately so that we can ensure the spot goes to a Cadet who is on the waiting list. 

CADETS MUST BRING everything as listed on the Kit List (contained within the Joining Instructions, below). 


PT Gear at CSTC


27.       As part of the renewal efforts related to cadet clothing, the issuing of PT Gear (grey t-shirts, grey shorts, and running shoes) was suspended earlier this year. Although a study will be carried out to identify suitable replacement for these items, this will not be in place for the CSTC season. As per the direction issued by DCdts & JCR, all cadets are required to bring a minimum of two pairs of athletic-style shorts and one pair of running shoes with them to allow them to safely participate in CSTC training this summer. For those who previously received them, CCO-issued grey shorts and running shoes are still authorized for wear this summer. Cadets will still be issued one elemental t-shirt (black, green, or blue) at the CSTC.
