Sea Cadet Corps
The Sea Cadets is a nationwide voluntary youth organisation, open to young people - both boys and girls - aged 12 to 18 and with Junior Sections open to those of 10 to 12 years of age, run by enthusiastic adult volunteers. We have almost 400 Units the length and breadth of the country, regularly welcoming around 15,000 Cadets.
Our training syllabus centres around life skills, general knowledge, the history and traditions of the Royal Navy. Water-borne activities include sailing, pulling (rowing), powerboating, canoeing and windsurfing. There is plenty to do on shore as well, with a broad variety of physical and practical subjects, such as climbing and abseiling, meteorology, engineering, music, football, marksmanship and IT.
We run national camps, courses and competitions throughout the year. Our offshore fleet gives Cadets the opportunity to crew a large ship around the UK coastline or even tomainland Europe. We also run international exchanges with a number of other countries.
In summary - fun, friendship, adventure and learning new skills is what we're about. Visit our website to find out more.
