Sea Cadets is a national youth organization for boys and girls aged 12 to 18. Sea Cadets teaches and encourages citizenship, responsibility, self-discipline, leadership, organization, time management, physical fitness, and overall self-improvement. We seek to instill a good hard work ethic, a sense of teamwork, and an understanding that success comes with effort and perseverance. All of this is achieved through an organized program of training and activities.
Sea Cadets learn about sailing and boating, communications, marching drill, target shooting, leadership and instructional technique, citizenship, music training, sports and fitness, and naval / maritime awareness and more. We have optional activities like first aid training, hiking, and orienteering.
We also have opportunities for Cadets to travel abroad on International Exchanges, or to be sent on Canadian Navy or Coast Guard ships for seamanship training.
We have an outstanding summer training program, with summer courses ranging from 2 to 8 weeks in length. After attending several summer training courses, Cadets can apply to become summer staff at our training centers, earning a great summer income and having fun doing it.
