“ I do solemnly promise on my honour to serve my corps loyally and to use every endeavour to become a good citizen, honouring my Queen, my country and my flag.”
Since our return to in-person training a few weeks ago, we've had new cadets join us every week. They love to learn, explore, and are curious about what challenges and adventures await them in the Sea Cadet program.
During their first few weeks in the program, the new recruits are welcomed by every cadet and officer at the corps. They start off by getting a glimpse of Tuesday night activities and have opportunities to ask questions. They even get an exclusive tour of the ship from our new recruits PO, POC1 Neiterman.
This week at the ship, we took some time to welcome and appreciate eight of our new cadets. They took an oath on the ship to “serve my corps loyally” and “become a good citizen.” So far, our new recruits have enjoyed their new experiences in their short time with us. They have taken part in a fitness assessment, helped us with our community cleanup initiative, and have received their very own Sea Cadet uniform.
As the night came to a close, the new recruits received certificate signifying their membership and oath to RCSCC 96 Dundas. We are very appreciative of our new recruits and hope that many more will join in the near future.

The Cadets Participated in a fun games night this weekend.
They took part in a Boat-Building Battle in Minecraft where they were challenged to recreate the Arctic Offshore Patrol Vessel (AOPV) HMCS Harry DeWolf. This was developed by CPOC2 Jani and POC1 SD, E for their PO503 Leadership Activity to demonstrate and practice their ability to plan and host events.
The teams had less than an hour to create their boats. They took their own routes to complete their boat and overcame time and space constraints in creative ways. While one team turned a misjudgment in positioning into a display of the inside of the boat, the other team decided they needed to fill their canvas with another vessel.
Both teams performed wonderfully and showed excellent teamwork!
