3071 Army Cadets

Registration Night – Sept 4th @ 6:30 pm!

What if you were told that there was a dynamic, structured youth program in Saskatoon that offered a variety of activities, FREE OF CHARGE during the WHOLE school year?

What if you were told that this same NO-COST program developed in youth an increased level of self-confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness? That it also taught important lessons about good citizenship, healthy living, and how to work towards personal goals?

If you are excited to learn about what Army Cadets can offer you, come visit us on September 4th and 11th! We have cadets on Wednesdays, Sept – June, at Pleasant Hill School, 215 Avenue S South, 6:30-9:00 pm.

Join the Adventure!
