About Us

Introduction

The Hong Kong Sea Cadet Corps was incorporated in 1968. The Corps is not a vocational training institute but a government subsidized Uniformed Youth Organisation with cadet members aged 12-18. All cadets are required to wear uniform and to observe discipline : they will participate in training and activities during weekends and school holidays only.

Aims

The Corps aims at providing nautical skills, team-building and discipline training to its cadet members through maritime activities and to develop in them such qualities of leadership, positive value, devotion to duty, self-respect and civic awareness so that they will become contributing citizens of our community.

Training & Activities

This includes naval customs, ceremonial drill, seamanship, communication, sea survival, navigation, water sports (e.g. canoeing & sailing), fire fighting, first aid, shooting, physical fitness, leadership, camping, expedition, community services and the Hong Kong Award for Young People. All cadets will be able to participate in the Joint Parade, Annual Camp and various exchange programmes to enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizon.
