What is Sea Cadets?
The Cadet Program is the largest federally-sponsored youth program in Canada. It is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea activities of the Canadian Forces.
Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water.
Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships. Additionally, Sea Cadets can compete for a chance to participate in annual sailing regattas!
Sea Cadets also participate in ceremonial events and citizenship. Additional objectives of the program provide opportunities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage and provides a platform to develop skills that will promote future community leaders.
A Former noteworthy Sea Cadet, Canadian comedian Rick Mercer. There are more than 40,000 Cadets across Canada!
