VERNON, B.C. – Army Cadet Braiden Phillip Charles Parry of Chestermere, Alberta, hikes along the Rim Trail at Cathedral Provincial Park during the six-week Expedition Instructor course at Vernon Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Cadet Parry is a member of 3125 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Chestermere, AB.

Cadets enrolled in the six-week Army Cadet Expedition Instructor Course learn first aid, mountain bike skills, hiking, canoeing, and navigation. A major part of their summer’s training is an 18-day expedition which takes them by canoe, mountain bike and foot from Sicamous, BC, to Cathedral Provincial Park near the United States border. The cadets paddle the Shuswap River and Mara Lake, hike the Larch Hills, mountain bike the Kettle Valley Railway and hike the mountains in Cathedral Provincial Park.

The Cadet Program is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.
