New Air Cadet Squadron – Startup Costs – $5000.00 April 2012
In 2011, the Air Cadet programs in Calgary were so successful in attracting and retaining youth membership that a waiting list for youth to join was created. Through the joint efforts of sponsors and donors, the 83 Parent Sponsoring Committee, The Air Cadet League of Alberta, and The Department of National Defense, Juno Beach Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron was formed on Dec. 12, 2011. The name Juno Beach Squadron was chosen to encourage youth to explore and honor the contributions of the RCAF prior to, and during a defining moment in Canadian history.
83 Juno Beach Squadron Air Cadet Squadron has a weekly parade every Tuesday at Juno Beach Academy in Calgary, AB, but this is not all that they do. We endeavor as a squadron to embody the Air Cadet Aims which are “to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership”, “promote physical fitness”, and “stimulate the interest of youth in the air activities of the Canadian”.
The Cadet Program is a FREE program for all youth between the ages of 12 and 18, and all are welcome to join.
