Cost

NLCC Captain Jackson is sponsored by the Calgary Branch of the Navy League of Canada. Membership to the Calgary Branch is $50.00 per cadet per year (to a family maximum $100.00 per year).

We now offer payment by credit card (Mastercard or Visa), in addition to cash. While we can accept personal cheques upon approval, to reduce costs we request that payment for memberships and additional activities be made in cash or by credit card if possible.

The membership fees to Calgary Branch are used to cover the costs of administrating the Captain Jackson cadet program. Fees collected are used to provide insurance coverage for the cadets, uniform costs, and instructional aids, to name only a few. Activities are held throughout the year, such as outings, camps, roller skating, and a Christmas dinner. These activities are subsidized by funds raised through bingos and casino (attended by parent/guardians), as well as fun activities such as bottle drives attended by cadets and parents/guardians. Alternative fundraising efforts may be hold throughout the year, such as SUTP book sales, Christmas wreath sales, and a march-a-thon.

NLCC Captain Jackson strives to have a major trip every three years with the focus being a "sea experience". Extra funding may be needed that cadet year to offset the costs of the trip.

Please note that Navy League memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable.

If you would like more information on the Calgary Branch or the Navy League of Canada please feel free to visit our office situated in the "old" Naval Museum or contact calgarybranchnlc@telus.net


Fundraising & Volunteering Commitments

Fundraising is absolutely essential to offer our cadets an exciting and effective program.

Parents/guardians are expected to participate in fundraising efforts to assist the Calgary Branch in providing the funds to support an enriched and diversified program for the cadets.

Fundraising may include:

  • Bingos: At established bingo halls, selling bingo cards on the floor or coordinating other volunteers. A minimum of 4 bingos is expected of each parent/guardian.
  • Casinos: May be traditional, silent, or "funny money".
  • Bottle drives: Once or twice a year, usually one weekend day. Cadets, with the help of officers and parents/guardians, distribute flyers mid-week, and collect pre-bagged bottle donations door to door.

Other fundraising and volunteering opportunities are available if a parent/guardian is unable to participate in one particular type of fundraising. Alternatives can be suggested by the Calgary Branch.

To inquire about fundraising alternatives, or suggest alternatives, please contact the Calgary Branch at calgarybranchnlc@telus.net
