Royal Canadian Army Cadets is a national youth organization supported by the Army Cadet League of Canada, the Canadian Forces, and sponsored by the Didsbury Elks, Royal Canadian Legion #105 Olds, and other local organizations. Partnering together, they provide uniforms, equipment, training and financial support. Army Cadets started in 1879, and today there are over 23,000 Cadets in more than 450 Corps. We encourage males and females aged 12 to 18 in Mountain View County to join our local Corps, and to participate in its weekly adventure and outdoor training activities and skill building. Cadets learn many things that may be used throughout their entire lives. Training is done in a challenging yet disciplined environment. Cadets are not part of the Canadian Forces. There is no cost to join.
