2020 Summer Training Activities

5 weeks of summer training activities |

Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, for about two to three hours per week. The choice of the 22 activities is the same as those offered on the “Cadet Activities” portal on the Extranet and posted on the Cadet Learning Facebook page, and detailed in the Virtual CTC course schedule.  Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. In order for Cadets to register for these activities, they must send an email to RCSU Pacific (British Columbia) with the following information: 

  • Last Name
  • First Name
  • Corps / Squadron Number
  • Corps / Squadron element
  • Name of the activity you wish to register for
  • Dates of serial you wish to register for
  • The language you would like the activity delivered in
  • Phone number (will be use as a second factor authentication for your online account) 
  • A email address that the cadet has access to
  • Instrument selection for cadets registering for the music course

Cadets’ email must be sent from their personal email address or an email that they can access.  A parent email, that the cadet cannot access, should not be used. Cadets will be contacted once they are loaded on an activity, and provided instructions on how to log in to the learning tools required to participate in the activity. All the information is also posted to the BC Cadets Facebook Page
