About the Army Cadet Program
The Army Cadet Program is the oldest of the three cadet programs. It's main focus is on Adventure training. Through challenging outdoor activities such as abseiling, trekking, canoeing, GPS, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, it helps Army cadets gain valuable life skills that they will carry for the rest of their lives. The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers craving exciting outdoor activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. The hardcore outdoor-oriented will love the challenge! It's the experience of a lifetime! They will also learn to become outdoor leaders.

Army Cadets get involved in ceremonial military events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian heritage. They develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement in a structured environment that allows them to hone their leadership skills as they grow older and they learn to care for younger cadets.
The Royal Canadian Army Cadet training program is divided into five portions: Green Star, Red Star, Silver Star, and Gold Star.
Green Star Training is designed to teach a new recruit the basics of cadet life. The Green Star course has a greater emphasis on drill than any other star level. All of the most common drill movements are taught in this course.
Red Star Training will complement the knowledge gained during Green Star Training. The Red Star course still has a great emphasis on drill, but it also adds on to the other aspects of the Star Training Program and introduces the cadets to the principles of leadership.
Silver Star Training will complement the knowledge gained during Green and Red Star Training but the emphasis will move from drill to leadership and teaching. Because those taking the Silver star course will be senior cadets, it is important that they know how to lead and teach.
Gold Star Training complements the knowledge gained during Green, Red and Silver Star Training. Gold Star Training is the most advanced training that a cadet can receive at the home corps level.
In addition to their specialty training, Army Cadets may become involved in other exciting activities like competitive Olympic-style marksmanship and biathlon, sports competitions, music training and competitions, cultural outings, volunteer community support, etc...
Canada represents the best playground for teenagers interested in the outdoors. We are the organization for teens and adults interested in getting out of the classroom to explore the planet the way it should be.
