In Fort St. John, Army Cadets get the opportunity to go camping and learn wilderness skills like using a map and compass, as well as take part in sports like marksmanship and a biathlon team, and learn skills like public speaking and first aid. Several Cadets also go out of town for summer camps.

The program is free of charge, and can be used for high school credits as well. Although the program accepts members year-round, September is its official recruitment month.
