Cadets have the opportunity to take part in many activities from sailing and power-boating, windsurfing and cooking, to rock climbing and Drill. Something for everyone.

Junior Cadets 10 - 12yrs.
This is about having fun and making friends. You'll take part in lots of events and activities like sailing, canoeing and abseiling, plus learn about first aid and communications.

Senior Cadets 12 - 18yrs.
Get to grips with subjects both on water and land as part of basic training, all on a nautical theme. You can take part in courses and competitions ranging from rock climbing and shooting to music, power boating and sailing. These can give you a head start in life and boost your confidence, it's also good fun.

FAQ Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Join us Sea Cadets Royal Marines Cadets Volunteer Parade Times FAQ Get in touch FAQ If you have a question, we've separated out the answers into who you may be – cadet, volunteer, parent or guardian, and supporter. What does it cost? It depends on the unit, but all charges are very low and heavily subsidised. We are determined that nobody should miss out because they can’t afford it, and help is always available. There are charges for training courses and camps but these are kept to a minimum. Sometimes you can get a bursary or grant for activities like our week-long voyages sailing offshore.

How we're funded

As a charity, we rely on the support of people and organisations including the Royal Navy who feel strongly about helping teenagers to find their way in life.

We don't want anyone to miss out

Cadets give a small weekly subscription, and contribute or fundraise towards the cost of the skills training they gain at Sea Cadets, and the trips in the UK and abroad.

But no young person is going to miss out on something because they can’t afford it. We use donations, gifts in wills, and grants to top up funding we receive from the Royal Navy so we can discreetly help teenagers who are struggling financially, to level the playing field, so everyone can join in with everything and try new possibilities.

This can be as simple as having some boot polish for parade, or a life-changing trip navigating our coastline in a tall ship.
