Summer Camp Information

Summer training is available to cadets, and is made up of courses ranging in length from a few days up to 6 weeks. Courses may be virtual, in-person or virtual, with focuses on leadership, drill and ceremonial, fitness and sports, marksmanship, music, and expedition training. There are no fees or charges to attend summer training, like the rest of the Cadet Program. Cadets will be provided with food, board and transportation. 


Cadet Activity Program (CAP) courses for more junior 337 Queen's York Rangers Cadets are primarily held locally. More advanced programs will be held at Cadet Training Centres (CTCs) throughout Canada. 


Applications for summer courses are done in February, and selections start being given out April. Most cadets who apply are selected for summer courses, but due to limited availability, not all cadets may be selected. Cadets are selected on the basis of attendance, cadet level, previous courses, and training performance.

Many summer courses are available to cadets. Cadets can only attend one course each summer. All the courses, and their requirements, are outlined in below.

As a general guide, courses are based on the Star Level completed as of June of that year:

CAP-1 is a 4-day, daily drop-off, activity program designed for 12–13-year-olds. It is intended to build confidence and facilitate meeting other cadets through participation as a member of a peer-lead team in fun, safe, challenging, and well-organized activities.
