Welcome Aboard RCSCC ST LAWRENCE


Get On Board with RCSCC ST LAWRENCE!

Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water.

Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, marksmanship, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships. Additionally, Sea Cadets can compete for a chance to participate in annual sailing regattas.

Sea Cadets also participate in ceremonial events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage.

The hands-on activities, exciting challenges and leadership opportunities for Sea Cadets are many. Canada’s motto, A Mari usque ad Mare (“From Sea to Sea”) can be applied to Sea Cadets. With Sea Cadet Corps found all across the country, and given Canada’s abundance of water and shoreline, the opportunities are many, whether inland or on either coast. You are bound to observe a Sea Cadet making a splash somewhere, from sea to sea!

The sea cadet movement is designed to help develop youth from ages twelve to eighteen to become better citizens. It is our hope that we will contribute in the development of your child through their involvement in the sea cadet program.

Cadet attendance and participation is of the utmost importance. Our cadets have won various awards and other achievements throughout the years; this is due to their hard work and dedication to the corps.

The officers and staff welcome your family to our Corps and we look forward to meeting with you at up-coming events.



Admissions are open for young men and women ages 12-18.
