What are Sea Cadets?
The Sea Cadets is a Nationwide, voluntary, uniformed youth organisation open to young people aged 10-18 years regardless of sex, religion, race and within the bounds of safety to themselves and others to those with special needs.
The Sea Cadets, are the number one youth charity based on the Royal Navy. And right here in Loughbrough we can really make your day with an action packed programme from boating and rowing to kayaking, sports and adventure training. We hope you'll make new friends and be part of a great team with us.
What's our aim?
The aim of Sea Cadets is to inspire young people through nautical adventure and challenge to help give them a head start in life. In short we want to give you the best fun you've ever had. Along the way we'll teach you life skills from cookery to computers, engineering, navigation and the art of seamanship. Much of training is practical and on the water in boats! A great way to spend your free time!
What activities do we do?
We get up to all sorts of things! In the summer we like to get out on the boats and learn new skills in rowing, powerboating, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. If you really love your boating and want to take it a step further you can also go and take a trip on one of our offshore fleet including our square rigged flagship T.S Royalist. If staying on the land is more your style we offer loads to do as well including adventure training, meteorology, shooting, computers, catering, drill, first aid, engineering, seamanship and navigation.
You can do some of these at our unit in Loughborough or travel to our specialist training centres around the country to meet other cadets from across the UK.
