Junior Cadets 10-12

This is about having fun and making friends. You'll take part in lots of events and activities like sailing, canoeing and abseiling, plus learn about first aid and communications. We are currently expanding our Juniors Section so if you have a 10-12 year old, or you're looking for something for your 9 year old to get involved with once they turn 10 - please get in touch!

Sea Cadets 12-18

Get to grips with subjects both on water and land as part of basic training, all on a nautical theme. You can take part in courses and competitions ranging from rock climbing and shooting to music, power boating and sailing. These can give you a head start in life and boost your confidence, plus it's good fun.

 

It is never too late to join the SCC, so, if you are 17 or over and feel you may be too old to get much out of it, come on board and allow us to change your mind!
