We are the 3125 Calgary Highlanders Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps base here in Chestermere, one of 4 cadet corps in Alberta affiliated with the Calgary Highlanders Regiment. Our program runs from September to June, with the option of summer training at different training centres across Canada. We teach and promote, leadership, citizenship, bush crafts, map and compass, physical fitness, and drill. As a member of The City of Chestermere, one of our goals is to be involve in the community.

We are a non profit organization, with the largest sponsors being each unit’s Parents Committee, offering the program FREE to youths age 12-18.
