Welcome back & welcome to our newest cadets who joined us last week on registration night!
A good amount of information was shared last week and I am sure many of our new cadet parents have questions. A lot of your answers can be found in our Parent Handbook (attached).
We will do our best to provide Monthly Routine Orders (two months at a time) to help plan your cadet’s attendance with NLCC Carinthia. Certain activities are considered mandatory attendance – Thursday evenings, Poppy Campaigns, Legion Parades & Tagging. Once competition teams come into play, attendance is strongly encouraged to allow the best performance of your cadet’s team. Routine Orders also show the expected uniform to be worn at said activity. September and October are attached as well as a preview of the year’s activities
OCs to CPOs
September 14th is regular training – uniforms are expected to be worn. If you’re still waiting for a uniform part exchange – please wear your Corps T Shirt, dark pants. Regular arrival time
Fill out this GOOGLE FORM for the activities as we need a headcount to send off permission forms.
Our Coxswain from 2023 is with us until October. For the month of September, we ask all cadets to form up in ONE DIVISION until we sort out our Divisional Petty Officers and their Division Names as well as the rest of our Cadet Staff. Once you all arrive be ready to form up at 1840-1845 – returning cadets, please help our NEs understand what it is to stand in DIVISION and get ready for Colors. This will also help everyone remember how to form up for our Newmarket Legion Convention Parade on September 30th.
Canteen will be available this year for purchase $1.
Cadets please bring their own drinks.
Cadets do not forget to label your ball caps & Cinch Sacks with your last name.
Parents remember to drop off & pick up your cadet personally. If someone else is bringing your cadet home, the office must be made aware.

Cadets who turned 12 years old as of Jan 1, 2022 do not need to show proof of vaccination. Simcoe County has a 12 week grace period for vaccinations. As of April 2022, Scanlon Creek is allowed to remove this requirement on their day camps!
Today is “Giving Tuesday”. We cannot run our Navy League Cadet Corps without the help and generous support of our community. Please consider making a donation by using the link below and choose the allocation of your funds to “Navy League Cadets” when giving this season. Thank you!
Our program is for youth ages 9-12 years old. It teaches them leadership, community support, and gives them a sense of camaraderie in a time needed most for their well being. As we slowly and protectively bring our Corps back to personal training, we need your support to allow us to run the training our cadets are used to with day camps, supplies, and team building activities.
