The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Army Cadet Corps Good Citizenship, Leadership Physical Fitness
Youth participate in expeditions, trekking, orienteering, and abseiling (the sport or activity of descending a rock face or other near-vertical surface by using a doubled rope coiled around the body and fixed at a higher point). The program is expected to be physically and mentally challenging, but there will be no artificial barriers developed which preclude participation based on gender, race, culture, religion, education, socioeconomic status, or ability.
Instills Canadian Military Values – The Cadet Program is guided by the best of Canadian military values and ethics. These values include respecting the dignity of all people, serving Canada before self, and obeying and supporting lawful authorities. Additionally, cadets will gain a better appreciation of the specific values of duty, loyalty, integrity, courage, stewardship, and excellence as expected of all Canadian Armed Forces members.
Develop Citizenship, Leadership, and Fitness – the Cadet program helps participants progressively develop into adults who contribute positively to Canadian society as leaders while instilling a lifelong appreciation of health and fitness.
Balance Safety and Challenge – Youth and their parents will have confidence that the activities and events the Cadets deliver are challenging, yet safe. They will also be confident that the adults leading the program are of unquestionably high moral character and are focused on the development of the Cadets.
Leave a positive lifelong impact – Whether youth stay with the program for many years or for just a few weeks, it is imperative that they remember the experience positively to help guide their development as productive Canadians.
Leaders are Trained – Cadets are supervised by members of the Cadet Organizations and Administration Training Service, most of whom are among the 7,500 members of the Cadet Instructors Cadre, a branch within the Reserve Force of the Canadian Armed Forces.
