Alberta and Northern Canada Golf Camp

The application period for Soldier On members wishing to participate in the 15-19 Sept 24 Alberta Golf Camp is now open. The application deadline is 15 Aug 24.

AIM AND SCOPE OF EVENT: 
Soldier On in collaboration with various Edmonton geographical area golf courses is happy to announce we are hosting the Soldier On Alberta and Northern Canada golf camp running from 15-19 Sept 24.  

The number of Soldier On participants is limited to 14.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: 
Any serving member or veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) from the Alberta and Northern Canada (NT/YT) who acquired a permanent physical or mental health illness or injury while enrolled as a member of the CAF; whether attributable or not to service.

Selected Serving members will require the approval of their Chain of Command to participate. 

*NOTE FOR SERVING MEMBERS: Amidst current financial limitations and a federal directive to reduce defense spending within DND by a Billion dollars, serving members' participation in Soldier On events and activities will now be limited to within their own local    region (i.e., selection for event outside of where they reside is unlikely). As a result, serving members are advised that participation beyond their local area is likely to be denied, as Soldier On cannot sponsor any temporary duty status for serving members in order to align with government guidelines for expenditure reduction. Unfortunately, serving members are not authorized to participate in Soldier On activities and events while on leave.*

**Participants are responsible for providing their own clubs and will be required to abide by the golf course outlined dress code.

MENTAL & PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants must be able to tolerate 7 hours of light/moderate paced activities for 4 days in a row.  Due to the busy activity schedule, applicants must have a limited requirement for rest throughout the day. *Note: carts will be provided for every golfer and in order to maintain a acceptable pace of play everyone will ride in a cart.  

Applicants will be joined with other ill/injured members and civilians, and therefore should be able to function in a social environment. Applicants are advised that the activity and meals for this event is located at Canadian Armed Forces bases/facilities, and thus they may be exposed to a day-to-day military environment. Applicants also acknowledge that there will be no alcohol allowed in the accommodations.
