For those heading off to a Cadet Summer Training Course (CSTC) this week. All the information you should need, if you don’t already have it, is available below. However, if you do have any further questions, please email Major Howie at: email@example.com
To Board the Bus to Camp:
You need to have the following to board the bus:
- Original Health Card.
- The CADET TRANSPORTATION FORM (click to download a copy).
- Your Signed Offer of Participation. You may have obtained this at the Camp Information Night. If not, Major Howie will have your form for you before you board the bus.
Note: The Signed Offer of Participation will be handed in upon arrival for a Cadet Summer Training Course (CSTC). If the cadet does not have their transportation form, signed offer and health card, the cadet may not be allowed to board the bus.
Major Howie provided cadets who have camp offers with their travel instructions, either at the Information Night or via a phone call. If you do not have your travel instructions, please contact Major Howie at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What to take to camp:
Please read your CSTC Specific Kit List closely (especially DCIC candidates). In each of the specific kits there are some addition forms you may need: Personal Articles Log, OTC (Over The Counter) / Prescribed Medication, Transportation Form, Leave Consent and Parental Direction, and Rules of Conduct – Course Cadets.
CSTC Specific Kit Lists:
Please use common sense as well (even thought it does not say insect repellant for Blackdown, it is highly recommend that it is packed for any Survival course).
Pack as many Dark Blue T-shirts as you have, they are worn every day (even under combats issued at Blackdown).
Under “Shorts, athletic”, it states to purchase, that is for you to do before you leave, they are not available to purchase at the CSTC. It is recommend mid thigh length or they may be confiscated (if they are too short). Your previously issued grey PT shorts are still applicable during summer training under this kit list item if you wish to take them. Same above applies for “Shoes, athletic”
Kit Bags: Please make sure your name and squadron is clearly marked on your kit bag.
Laundry Service: is provided free of charge in Trenton and Connaught. Blackdown Cadets have to wash their own clothes (start training now).
Water Bottles: are not required for Blackdown and Connaught since these are Army Cadet Camps so all cadets are issued Combat Clothes, Belts and Canteens.
Be Warned: Anything not on the KIT LIST may be confiscated upon arrival and not returned to you until the night before graduation.
