What costs are involved?
Junior Sea cadets
Junior Sea Cadets attend once a week and pay 50p on a Friday evening.
Uniform: Junior Sea Cadets will need to purchase a JSC sweatshirt (£12) and Beret (£5). They should wear a white shirt and school trousers (black or grey).
Sea Cadets attend twice a week and pay £1 on a Friday evening.
Uniform: Cadets pay a £20 deposit and will receive two sets of uniform - a working rig which we call No. 4's which are worn to weekly parades and competitions and a best uniform called No.1's. These uniforms are loaned by the Royal Navy, and as such, they are expected to be returned if the cadet decides to leave.
Cadets will also need to purchase boots (approximately £30-40) and a beret badge £5.
Unit courses are run at minimal cost - we only pass on costs to parents if there is a need to pay for logbooks or certificates.
Training courses start from £11 per day and rise to £15 per day. This will include travel, food and accommodation. Bursaries are available for training at all levels, and we try to provide as much training free of charge as possible.
