Ready for take off - Leading Air Cadet Simon Dahl (with cardboard airplane), from 691 Hawk Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Indian Head, throws his cardboard airplane at Camp Saskcadet near Kelvington on July 28.

Leading Air Cadet Simon Dahl from the 691 Hawk Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Indian Head enjoyed attending programs at Camp Saskcadet this summer.
“I met a lot of new people,” said Dahl.
During the five-day Cadet Activity Program held near Kelvington, SK from July 24 to 29, cadets had their fitness assessed, played sports, shot air rifles, ran a summer biathlon, and participated in a drill competition.
Cadet Dahl is in his first year as a cadet with 691 Hawk Squadron. He joined cadets because some friends were cadets and his parents were former cadets.
“I’ve had a great time at cadets so far and can’t wait to see what the future holds,” said Dahl.
The Cadet Activity Program is one of many activities available year-round to youth at local, regional, and national levels through the Cadet Program. The Cadet Program is open to youth between the ages of 12 and 18 years old and develops confident, self-sufficient leaders who form lasting friendships and are engaged in their communities. Air Cadets also learn about aviation technologies, aircrew survival, and how to fly.
Adults are also needed to help train, administer, and supervise the local youth involved in the Cadet Program. Becoming part of the Cadet Program is easier than you may think, it is a lot of fun, and the skills you learn are likely transferable to your regular employment. Training starts locally in September and no previous military or cadet experience is needed.
Contact 691 Hawk Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron at 306-695-2795 or email to find out how to get in on the fun and learning.
