International Air Cadet Exchange
HOST FAMILIES REQUIRED IMMEDIATELYThe Air Cadet League will be hosting 66 cadets and 13 escorts in the Maritimes this summer beginning July 18th when they arrive in Halifax. They are coming from 10 different countries around the world, including Australia, Belgium, China, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Korea, United Kingdom, and the USA. They will begin their tour through Nova Scotia for 6 days, then on to PEI for 3 days. They will arrive in New Brunswick on July 27th, where they will be touring Argonaut base camp and the City of Fredericton.
On Friday July 29th, the cadets will arrive in Moncton. Their first stop here is a tour of the air traffic control centre in Riverview. As part of the tour, they are placed with local host families to learn what Maritime life is all about. The dates required for hosting are Friday July 29th 5pm to Sunday July 31st. Hosting duties will end around 10am Sunday July 31st at a farewell BBQ for cadets and host families at Rotary Lodge in Centennial Park.
Once they leave their host families, they will be doing a Shediac Bay cruise and seeing the Big Lobster. On Monday August 1st they will be heading to Hopewell Rocks where they will be seeing the site at both high tide and low tide, being able to tour the ocean floor. They will complete their NB visit with a tour of Resurgo place in Moncton on Tuesday morning. Then it will be off to Nova Scotia for their farewell dinner in Halifax before heading back home.
To be a family, you need to be able to take a minimum of 2 cadets, but can take more if the accommodations are appropriate. There is an application form to fillsame room if they are the same gender. Every person living in the household over the age of 18 needs to have a clear PRC (police records check) and VSS (vulnerable sector screening) done.
Cadets need downtime so there is no need to be a tour guide for them. They may want to do some laundry, connect with family back home, shop, relax. It is a time for them to learn about New Brunswick and for you to learn about their families and customs from their country.
They want to learn how Maritimers live so share your traditions and family routines with them. Eg – you may enjoy a particular dish – poutine, seafood – that they may not have ever tried before. Let them experience this. Treat them as if they are a relative that has finally come to visit you.
Reimbursement of actual expenses is not available, but a tax receipt for a per diem amount can be claimed after the visit happens.
In past years, this has been rated as the most memorable part of the exchange trip for both the cadets and the host families. Help us show them that Maritimers are warm and welcoming people.
