What are YOU doing this summer?
Did you know Sea Cadets travel to different Training Centres across Canada to learn skills of various trades, many of which can be transferrable to life and jobs in their future?
The main training centre for our cadets is HMCS ONTARIO in Kingston, ON - however, depending on the cadets choice of course/trade, they may spend the summer at HMCS ACADIA in Nova Scotia, or HMCS QUADRA in British Columbia - or other local training centres in Ottawa.
A cadet gets to choose what courses they take over the summer. Their first summer, they can take a 2 week General Training course, which gives them a good understanding of the various trades/courses they can specialize in the following years. The trades available are: Sailing (where a cadet achieves levels with the CYA, and can even achieve racing and instructor levels)... Seamanship (known as the real Naval trade)... Drill & Ceremonial... Sports & Fitness... Music... or Marksmanship.
All of the courses are fun and challenging! And... unlike regular summer camps - cadets don't have to pay to attend these courses - they can earning training bonuses and come home with money in their pocket!
After the cadets turns 16, they can apply to be a staff cadet at these training centres - and get paid with a full time job for the summer - with free room and board!
So - Why haven't you joined Dundas Sea Cadets yet?
