A BIT ABOUT THE CADET PROGRAM
With more than 54,000 Cadets, the Canadian Cadet Organizations help develop skills that will help youth transition into adulthood.
From good citizenship, leadership, and a focus on physical fitness, Cadets have experiences that you don’t find anywhere else, all while learning about the Sea, Land, and Air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Sea Cadets learn seamanship skills, including navigation and how to sail. Army Cadets participate in expeditions, trekking, orienteering and abseiling. Air Cadets focus on aviation-related activities including flying, gliding and studies in aerospace.
Cadets are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), nor is the Cadet Program a recruiting platform for the CAF. While some cadets chose a career in the CAF, our focus is in helping young people develop life skills, like teamwork, leadership and decision making, which will benefit them no matter what career they choose.
Cadets learn to become active members of their communities. They make valuable contributions to their communities on a daily basis through citizenship and community service activities.
Cadets develop valuable life and work skills such as self-confidence, self-esteem, teamwork and respect for others while having fun and building lasting friendships.
A BIT ABOUT 102
The 102 Sarnia 1st Hussars Royal Canadian Army Cadets were founded on November 18th, 1903, originally named The Sarnia Collegiate Institute Cadet Corps changing affiliation two more times before becoming affiliated with the First Hussars on April 1st, 1965, and remains a proud member of the 1H Cadet Corps. We are sponsored by Branch 62 of the Royal Canadian Legion and are honored to support them in their many activities within the community such as the candlelight vigil and the Remembrance Day ceremony.
As a Cadet in our corps, you will be expected to maintain a high level of attendance, dress, behavior, and attitude. The cadet program's aim is to create citizenship in our youth, promote physical fitness, stimulate interest in the Canadian forces and teach our youth about leadership.
