Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Esquimalt is a part of the Cadets Canada program located in the Parksville and Qualicum Beach area.
The Cadets Canada program is open to youth 12 to 18 years of age. Cadets is a free program subsidized by the Government of Canada and the Navy League of Canada. This program offers outstanding leadership and training opportunities. There are opportunities to participate in local training, summer training, vessel deployments, and international exchanges. Cadets can participate in sailing, seamanship, marksmanship, music, physical fitness, and personal development activities. There is ABSOLUTELY no requirement to join the military nor are Cadets members of the military. The entire Cadets Canada program is guided by three aims and all activities are designed to meet these three aims. The aims of the program are to:
– Promote good citizenship

– Provide an interest in the Canadian Armed Forces
If you are looking for an exciting and challenging experience while making new and possibly life long friends, then this is the program for you. We encourage interested individuals to come and check out RCSCC Esquiamlt and learn what the program is all about.
