Summer Programs


Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Program

Sea cadets 2

The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Program is for youth ages 12-18. The program is completely free of charge and offers youth an opportunity to become more involved in their community, as well as develop skills that are beneficial for their future. In the cadet program, there are several different aspects and activities. We focus on leadership, seamanship, sailing, marksmanship, and even band. Lifelong friendships can be made with other cadets from around the world, and there are also many opportunities to travel across canada for summer camps and deployments, and even across the world for international exchanges. If you're looking for something fun, exciting, challenging, and rewarding, this program could be perfect for you.

Sea Cadets meet every Wednesday night at the Barrington Recreation Centre from 6:30-9:00.

Anyone between the ages of 12-18 can register on any Wednesday night throughout their training year.
