There are many things happening throughout the summer, please look below and see what you are interested in. You need to email the President Marci Kieswetter if you are interested in CIR or Highland games.

Good day all!  Since the mid 2000’s 2554 PPCLI RCACC has been developing it’s highly successful RECCE training program.  The RECCE training program focuses on the practical application of navigation, bushcraft and leadership with many opportunities for CF familiarization as well.  This past year we successfully integrated another corps in the program and now are opening up participation to others.  Next Tuesday 23 Jun 15 we will be hosting an information session including testimony from cadet and adult participants, a detailed overview of the training plan and opportunities for questions for representatives from interested corps from 1900 to 2100 at the Currie building.
