The Royal Canadian Army Cadets, a federally-supported program, develops leadership skills, good citizenship, and physical fitness in youth aged 12 to 18, while stimulating interest in the history and activities of the Canadian Forces. There are currently over 18,000 Army cadets in more than 400 Cadet Corps across Canada. 1596 Royal Highland Fusiliers of Canada Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (1596 RHFC RCACC) prides itself on developing self-esteem, confidence and discipline in today's youth.
The Army cadet program is designed to provide opportunities for tomorrow's leaders to grow and excel through training in the form of lessons taught on Wednesday nights, team building exercises in the field, and participation on any of five competition teams. At this time, the teams at 1596 RHFC RCACC include biathlon, drill, and a newly formed pipe and drum band, as well as orienteering and marksmanship. Many of these teams need special equipment or require funds for transportation and meals at competition and field training exercises. As a non-profit organization, the Support Committee relies on fundraising as well as corporate and personal donations to provide additional financial support for items not funded by the cadet program.
