Organize an opportunity of a lifetime for your Cadet corps:

For the past few years, EF Tours has been dedicating a lot of resources in promoting their tours of European Battlefields where Canadians fought for our freedom during the two World Wars and various other History Tours dedicated to provide cadets an experience of a lifetime.  Take a moment to find out what they offer by viewing their recently added Cadet Tours and We Salute You! All About Canadian Cadets pages.

With some planning and organization of fundraising activities these tours are possible.

EF Educational Tours is already working closely with various Army Cadet Corps from across the country to tour Vimy Ridge, Juno Beach, and other battlefields where heroes fought to liberate Europe.  These tours instill a strong sense of remembrance and bring young Canadians through a journey into our nation’s past.
