What is CAP?
The Cadet Activities Program (CAP for short) is a daytime program, set for March Break 2021, designed to provide safe, fun and challenging in-person activities for cadets of all levels at local sites across Ontario. All activities will be aligned with all appropriate COVID-19 safety guidelines, such as wearing masks, physical distancing, and sanitation practices.

What Activities?
We are planning a diverse range of activities, tailored to the conditions of each local area, which may include sports, amazing race and escape room-type events, marksmanship, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, cultural tours, and even visits with Canadian Armed Forces equipment and personnel.

High school CO-OP Credit Opportunity

I would like to share the good news that this year, the UCDSB-lead program in which cadets in RCSU Central can obtain high school credits during the training year, will be expanded to include all areas of RCSU Central.

Although the program is lead by UCDSB, cadets do not need to be students of that board to participate. Any Ontario high school student in any school board (English, French, Catholic, or Public) may participate as long as they have already obtained at least one high school credit, or will have one credit by the end of June 2021, and reside in Ontario.

How it works is that cadets, once registered, can obtain up to 4 credits per training year based on the work, participation, and attendance of any cadet activity including mandatory, complementary, and optional training. Virtual training is included. For every 90 hours logged with cadet related activities, one credit can be granted. Credits are tailored to match a cadet’s interests and involvement. For example, Phys Ed credits, History credits, and Music credits are all possible, based on what activities the cadet routinely participates. Cadets will also complete the pre-placement assignments and a monthly journal entry.

Below is the registration form for cadets, as well as an FAQ sheet.

We are pleased to announce that the squadron will be issuing all active cadets a field training uniform (FTU) in the near future.

If you did not submit your sizes by the August 16 deadline, your FTU will be ordered based on the latest uniform size we have on file, which may or may not be correct.
