General Information

  •  All cadets applying for Army cadet summer training must be medically fit and submit an application for summer training. These applications are submitted using the FORTRESS - The National Administration System for the CCO, and are completed for cadets through their Corps staff.
  • Due to the remote location of some Cadet Summer Training Centres (CSTCs), cadets with severe allergies or other medical conditions that may require rapid medical attention may be precluded from attending certain courses.
  • Applicants must have parent/guardian consent, and must be recommended by their Commanding Officer (CO).
  • The cadet must have successfully completed the required training level, and also meet any other prerequisite(s) specific to the course(s) for which the application is made.
  • A cadet’s 19th birthday must occur after the return travel date.
  • In all cases, the cadet must have demonstrated an interest in, and aptitude for, further Army cadet training.
  • Cadets who report for summer training and are found not to meet course prerequisites may be re-coursed or returned to unit, at the discretion of the CSTC CO.
  • A training bonus of $10 per day is paid to every cadet for each day of training they complete (to a weekly maximum of $60, and a course maximum of $360). Depending on the course and CSTC, this may be paid upon completion of the course, or portions of the bonus may be paid during the course.
