In order for 632 Squadron to activate the member benefit, we need to first gather a list of a minimum of 20 interested individuals from our cadets, their families, staff and Sponsoring Committee.

Once we have a list of 20, we will provide this information to the YMCA, and we will provide each individual with a letter confirming membership with 632. You will then be able to register with the pricing package you decide as per the attached document.
