Air Cadet Summer Training Program
Every summer, thousands of cadets in Ontario attend various courses (commonly called “camps”) at cadet training centres and other locations across the province. 180 Sqn normally sends around 60 - 70 cadets every year to the various courses.
Summer courses range from the 2-week General Training Course (GTC), to 3-week basic courses, and to 6-week advanced and national courses. Aside from GTC, all the courses focus on an aspect of the cadet program, such as leadership, outdoor survival, sports, music and aviation. Most cadets will go to CFB Trenton (2 hours east of Toronto) or CFB Borden (1 hour north of Toronto).
Summer courses are free and transportation to all training centres is provided. As well, clothing (hat, shirt, shorts, running shoes) are issued by 180 Sqn in the spring.
All departures are from Denison Armouries at 1 Yukon Ln.
All returns are also to Denison Armouries.
Cadets are permitted to be picked up after graduation parades, but must notify Captain Marsh and receive confirmation from him.
Some courses, such as those in other provinces, international exchange, etc., may have other departure locations and dates. More info will follow on the home page.
