Cadets are reminded that they are responsible for their own personal and cadet issued property.  It is highly recommended to cadets not to bring electronics, jewlery, large quantities of cash, etc... to parade nights and other cadet activities.  The Squadron will not take responsibility for lost kit.  We caution cadets not to leave kit downstairs in the washrooms at the Armoury.  If you are bringing your uniform or PT gear with you to cadets to change into make sure that you have a back pack to put your clothes into and leave it upstairs.

Below is a link to the 2013 Cadet Summer Training Course (CSTC) Information Pamphlet.  The pamphlet describes all the summer training opportunities for air cadets and the prerequisites that must be met to apply.  Also below is a link to the Participation Application Form that you must complete if you wish to go to camp this summer.

If you have any questions please speak to your flight commander, level officer, or Cpl Mooij who is accepting the applications.

Please note that the deadline for handing in your application is Wednesday, February 13, 2013.
