About RCSCC GRILSE

Sea Cadets is a national youth organization for boys and girls aged 12 to 18. Sea Cadets teaches and encourages citizenship, responsibility, self-discipline, leadership, organization, time management, physical fitness, and overall self-improvement. We seek to instill a good hard work ethic, a sense of teamwork, and an understanding that success comes with effort and perseverance. All of this is achieved through an organized program of training and activities.
Sea Cadets learn about sailing and boating, communications, marching drill, target shooting, leadership and instructional technique, citizenship, music training, sports and fitness, and naval / maritime awareness and more. We have optional activities like first aid training, biathlon, hiking, camping and orienteering.
Check out some of our activities by browsing the photo albums on our Facebook page.
We also have opportunities for Cadets to travel abroad on International Exchanges, or to be sent on Canadian Navy or Coast Guard ships for seamanship training.
We have an outstanding summer training program, with summer courses ranging from 2 to 8 weeks in length. After attending several summer training courses, Cadets can apply to become summer staff at our training centers, earning a great summer income and having fun doing it.
RCSCC GRILSE is the only Sea Cadet Corps in the Tri-Cities. Our Cadets come primarily from Port Moody, Coquitlam, and Port Coquitlam. We also sometimes draw Cadets from the surrounding communities, including Pitt Meadows, New Westminster, the north side of Burnaby and even the east side of Vancouver. There are no “designated catchment” areas for Cadets, you can join a Corps in another community if you wish, so even if there is a Sea Cadet Corps more local to you, you are free to choose GRILSE if you wish to join us.
