The 2483 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps opened its doors to new recruits and their families, as well as Corps Sponsors and Donors on Tuesday evening, on September 17 as they prepared for their 61st training year.

The Interactive Open House saw lots of community interest in the Army Cadet Program in Esquimalt, with the Corps cadets talking to possible new recruits (and their families) about the marksmanship program; the Corps band; orienteering; local, regional and national expeditions; as well as what the overall Canadian Cadet Movement is all about.

Cadets is all about teaching our youth to become better citizens and leaders of the future; promoting physical fitness; and instilling an interest in the Canadian Armed Forces.  Cadets is a non-profit, Department of National Defence sponsored, youth organization for people between 12 and 18 years of age.

The Canadian Cadet Movement is always looking for new Cadets and adults who are interested in becoming a Cadet Instructor Cadre Officer supporting this great program.  As well, there are no mandatory fees attached to being an Army Cadet and these youth can also earn high school credits for various aspects of the Cadet program.

2483 PPCLI RCACC parades Tuesday evenings from 6:20 p.m. to 9:10 p.m. in the Nixon Gym at Work Point Barracks, with its headquarters, administration and supply located at 455 Head Street, in Esquimalt.  If your child is interested in joining, come down on any Tuesday evening and the Commanding Officer and Corps staff will show you why this is the best youth program in Canada.
