Welcome to 1292 Army Cadet Corps Web Site

PARKING AT GENERAL SIR ARTHUR CURRIE BUILDING

Please be advised that due to ongoing construction in the main parking lot,

 the drop off/pick up of cadets will have to be done in the loop in front of the

 General Waters Building or at the main gate. The lane has limited room for

turning so in order to avoid traffic jams we suggest cadets be dropped off at

 the gate and walk in. We will update this page and Facebook as soon 

as we have access to the parking area again.

Events & Achievements

1292 Army Cadets takes away three top awards

 1292 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp sent 45 cadets to camps this past summer. Three of them brought home awards from Vernon Cadet Training Centre.

Top In Course, Basic Expedition Course: C/MCpl Griffin Heckford

Top In Platoon, Basic Expedition Course: C/MCpl Eric Poupart         

Top In Platoon, Basic Marksmanship Course: C/MCpl Rowan Lopez

 Winning these awards was no easy task as the Basic Expedition Course at Vernon had over 50 cadets participating in it. This course is the first step in the expedition program, cadets learn the basics of expedition, and participate in hiking, biking, and canoeing. Both C/MCpl Poupart and C/MCpl Heckford showed lots of enthusiasm and energy. Their ‘hard skills’ were strong, and improved greatly over the course of the summer. Both were always willing to lend a hand to their peers and help where necessary. Their displays of everyday leadership stood out amongst their peers.

 C/MCpl Rowan Lopez attended the Basic Marksmanship Course at Vernon CTC and placed Top in his Platoon. He was enthusiastic, showed strong skills and was always willing to help his peers. The Basic Marksmanship course provides cadets with an opportunity to build on their marksmanship skills and is the first step to these cadets being selected to go to some of the top Marksmanship competitions in the country.

 Attending a cadet training centre is a wonderful opportunity for all cadets as it helps them grow as individuals and team members. Cadets from across western Canada come to participate in the various courses offered at Vernon Cadet Training Centre. It is both a challenging and rewarding experience with lots of competition.

 All three cadets are members of 1292 Lord Strathcons’s Horse (Royal Canadian) Army cadet corps located in Calgary, Alberta. These passionate cadets have shown constant dedication and unwavering motivation as they take advantage of all the cadet program has to offer. They set a high standard for all others to follow, and as they progress through the cadet program there is no doubt they will continue to excel and lead 1292 Army Cadet Corps into the future.
