Seamanship, orienteering, leadership skills, first aid, communications, sailing, and marksmanship are only some of the skills you will learn as a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets!
There are over 1300 young Canadians between the ages of 12 to 18 years in 37 corps who are actively involved in the Prairie Region Sea Cadet program.
Activities are offered year round for Sea Cadets. Cadets participate in weekly activities from September through June each year. Summer Training Centres run June through August and all cadets have the opportunity to attend.
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 activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage.
The hands-on activities, exciting challenges and leadership opportunities for Sea Cadets are many. Canada’s motto, A Mari usque ad Mare (“From Sea to Sea“) can be applied to Sea Cadets. With Sea Cadet Corps found all across the country and given Canada’s abundance of water and shoreline, the opportunities are many whether inland or on either coast .You are bound to observe a Sea Cadet making a splash somewhere, from sea to sea!
