Summer training is offered to select cadets based on merit. Courses are two, three, six or seven weeks long. The first course is usually a two week general training course and each year cadets return to camp they participate in more advanced training.

Courses offered include training in leadership, instructional techniques, music, marksmanship, flying, navigation, meteorology, air traffic control, ceremonial drill, physical education, computer skills, survival training, aerospace studies and citizenship. Advanced Cadets can qualify for glider scholarships and powered flight scholarships.

While cadets are undergoing summer training they are paid a modest allowance to supplement their needs while on base. The Canadian Forces provide all transportation, meals, lodging and special equipment.

Senior cadets have the opportunity to apply for a Staff Cadet position and conduct training over the summer.
