The Wellington Rifles Army Cadet Corps is a youth organization for teenage boys and girls of the community between the ages of 12 and 18 who wish to challenge themselves with Leadership, Map and Compass, Marksmanship, Citizenship and various other topics. “The Wellington Rifles” Army Cadet Corps also perform in many community service activities such as parades, citizenship and remembrance ceremonies during the year. The cadets also have the opportunity to attend summer camps where they will continue to learn and hone their skills in the army cadets.

The Ultimate Challenge

The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers craving exciting outdoor activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. The hardcore outdoor-oriented will love the challenge!

Army cadets develop abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, canoeing, abseiling, trekking, mountain biking, etc. As they get more experienced, some will be selected for parachuting, white-water rafting and glacier climbing. They will also learn to become outdoor leaders.

Army Cadets get involved in ceremonial military events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian heritage. They develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement in a hierarchical system that allows them to hone their leadership skills as they grow older and they learn to care for younger cadets.

In addition to their specialty training, Army Cadets may become involved in other exciting activities like competitive Olympic-style marksmanship and biathlon, sports competitions, music training and competitions, cultural outings, volunteer community support, etc.

Canada represents the best playground for teenagers interested in the outdoors. We are the organization of choice for teens and adults interested in getting out of the classroom to explore the planet the way it should be.
