Are you between the ages of 12 through 18?
Our program is filled with many fun and exciting activities for you to be involved in. We have been active in the Town of Bowmanville since 1981 many cadets have participated in this program and have moved on to be very prominent people in their communities.
We offer instruction in leadership, seamanship, air rifle marksmanship, sailing, sailing regattas, power boating, drill, orienteering and biathlon. Cadets will also be given ample opportunities to fulfill their community service requirement when participating in the program. We also have two, three and six week summer training opportunities for those that excel through the training year. Selected senior cadets have the chance to attend international exchanges, sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard a Canadian Navy Vessel or Coast Guard Ship.
If you are interested in music and would like to join a parade marching band, we provide this as well.
