Student interpreters share the past with modern visitors while fine-tuning both their research and presentation skills. This is an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates to apply knowledge learned in the classroom, gain experience, and meet professionals in the field.
As part of the program, each participant is provided with a uniform, equipment, and the training required to take on the role of either a military musician or soldier.
Participants must be physically capable of performing military foot and arms drill; should be at least 12 years of age for musicians or 15 years for private soldiers; have not yet reached their 26th birthday; and must have parental approval to join if under 18 years of age.
Training and summer activities are usually scheduled on Saturday afternoons from 1pm to 4pm.
Student program members are all volunteers and as such are not paid. They can however apply for a paid summer job with the regiment as positions become available.
A $40.00 registration fee that covers insurance and other costs is due upon acceptance.
