Summer Training

Cadets who successfully complete level training are eligible to apply for summer training. Camps are between 2-7 weeks in duration.  Refer to the course brochures for detailed descriptions of each course and criteria for attending.

Not all cadets will be chosen to attend summer training.  The Commanding Officer, with input from the squadron staff, will rank cadets based on merit (attendance, attitude, participation, team work and performance).  Final selections will be made from this list by the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Northwest).  Region will also consider the cadet's preferences and the camp load (how many cadets total can attend each course) in order to make final selections.  If you have questions about the selection process please talk to the office.

Due date for Summer Training Applications and Selection Board Course Packages: Dec 5, 2018

Turn in your completed applications to the Administration Office.


Late applications for most courses can be accepted, however cadets will automatically be loaded at the bottom of the priority list.  Submit your applications on time for the best chance of being selected!  Late applications for selection board courses can not be accepted, all deadlines must be abided by.
