Since 1948, the Navy League Cadet program has introduced young Canadians to a nautical life. The Navy League is an exciting program that provides rewarding opportunities for today's youth.Navy League Cadets get to do a lot of fun and interesting activities and it's a great place to make friends and do things you wouldn't get to do anywhere else. Cadets have opportunities to attend summer camps, learn about boating and sailing, earn badges for their uniform and participate in a wide variety of events.
While the Navy League of Canada and Royal Canadian Sea Cadet programs introduce cadets to the Navy, Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces and are free to leave the program at any time. From September to June, Sea Cadets participate in local training one evening per week and are also required to conduct a minimum of four weekend activities throughout the year.
Cadets get to participate in a great variety of activities, including many experiences that are unique to this program.
- Boating & Sailing
- Swimming & Watersports
- Camping & Hiking
- Band Program
- Citizenship (Parades, Community Events)
- Sports & Fitness
- Naval Knowledge
- Leadership Training
- Local, Regional & National Competitions
The primary aim of the Navy League is to promote, organize, sponsor, support and encourage the education and training of youth with a maritime orientation and by providing recreational opportunities and training which promotes the physical and mental fitness of boys and girls participating in the Cadet program. In addition, we strive to educate our youth in citizenship, leadership, discipline, self-respect and the respect of others.
