26, 27 Sept 2015 - Edmonton Garrison - More than 300 cadets and adults representing 35 corps from across Alberta, NWT and the Yukon Territories participated in Army Cadet Challenge 2015. It was a challenging and fun weekend competition that reinforced field skills taught at each corps as part of the mandatory army cadet training program. Cadets in 35 teams moved to a variety of stations that included setting up a 5-person arctic tent, constructing a 2-person shelter and participating in a navigation route. Army Cadet Challenge 2015 provided an excellent venue for familiarization of the Canadian Armed Forces as members of Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) displayed a Leopard 2A4 main battle tank and a Coyote armoured vehicle. Soldiers of First Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light lnfantry provided supervision and encouragement as cadets participated in the obstacle course. The team-based weekend activity allowed participants to demonstrate unit morale and esprit de corps. Senior army cadets acted as support staff to develop their leadership abilities while enhancing their expertise in field skills. Photo by Captain Grant Cree.
