Welcome to the 2383 High River Army Cadet Corps!


Cadets is a dynamic, structured youth program offered to all Canadian youth 12 - 18 years of age geared to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness. 

The Cadet program promotes leadership, citizenship, physical fitness and an interest in the Canadian Armed Forces and there are no fees to join!! 

We meet once a week on Wednesdays and have several weekend activities through the year.  The program runs from September to May/June each year with the opportunity to continue training at summer camps across the country for those selected.
