Tuesday evenings from 6:15pm to 9pm and some weekends.
WHERE DO WE MEET?
Building 312, Charter Avenue, Pleasantville.
You can join 2515 as soon as you've reached your 12TH birthday and you can remain until you turn 19.
WHAT DO I NEED TO JOIN?
All you need to join 2515 is an interest in the program and your parent's/guardian's permission. You also have to be willing to attend regular training and adventure activities.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO JOIN?
There is no enrollment fee to join the cadet program or 2515. However, our cadets may be asked to take part in fundraising activities that support optional programming in which 2515 participates.
The two major partners in the Army Cadet program are the Department of National Defence and the Army Cadet League of Canada (a civilian non-profit corporation).
No. The Canadian Forces loan complete uniforms to Cadets, and Cadets are expected to take good care of their uniform.
Attendance at Cadet Summer Camps is free. The Canadian Forces provide all transportation, meals, lodging and special equipment. Every Cadet attending summer camp receives a training allowance; Cadets in staff positions at camp receive a salary.
CAN I GO TO SUMMER CAMP?
For those interested, Cadets have summer camps located across Canada. Our camp is called Argonaut and is located at CFB Gagetown, NB. Cadets can go to camp for two to eight weeks on a variety of courses. Each camp offers a unique mixture of outdoor activities and valuable instruction.
In addition, selected Cadets go on exchange trips to countries such as Australia, England, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Wales and Italy under an international exchange program. Exchange Cadets are selected on their high standards in performance, fitness and involvement in Cadet activities.
Olympic biathlon gold medallist MyriamBédard, Actor Jim Carrey, Astronaut Chris Hadfield, and former Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador Danny Williams were all Cadets in their teens?
SPORTS NIGHTS, HALLOWEEN, ROCK CLIMBING AND SLIDING NIGHTS
The biggest reward a cadet will ever receive is the respect and admiration of family, friends, peers and the community for the honorable service they provide.
Cadets may also receive the Army Cadet Service Medal (for 4 years service), the Major-General W.A. Howard Award, the Royal Canadian Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence and the Lord StrathconaMedal. In addition, Cadets can earn bravery awards for acts of valor.
