136 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps (RCSCC) AMPHION – Nanaimo BC

This website was created to show what RCSCC AMPHION’s cadets are involved in and what the program can offer youth in the Nanaimo area.

The Sea Cadet program provides an opportunity to participate in community events, parades, as well as marksmanship, first aid, drill, seamanship, military band, first aid, sailing, small craft operation, and sports events.

Participation in the program also provides a platform towards the development of skills that can promote future community leaders such as comedian Rick Mercer and astronauts Mark Garneau and Chris Hadfield.

Sea Cadets are sponsored by the Department of National Defence and the Navy League of Canada.

We continue to grow in numbers through ongoing recruitment and are always looking for young people who want to learn about the sea and want a challenge.

We operate with a qualified staff of CIC Officers and Civilian Volunteer instructors and are co-sponsored by our Navy League of Canada Branch committee and the Dept of National Defence (DND).
