You can join 2515 as soon as you've reached your 12TH birthday and you can remain until you turn 19.

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.

DO I PROVIDE MY OWN UNIFORM?

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.
