Review for US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 17 year old son joined the Naval Sea Cadets 15 months ago and I can't begin to emphasize the impact this program has had on him. His grades have improved, he has more self confidence, and he has learned many valuable life lessons that most teenagers don't learn until they are adults. He attended a 2 week "recruit training" which started the day after Christmas last year. He has learned to present colors prior to Professional sporting events and in parades as part of the Sea Cadets color guard. They attended a Navy Football game last fall, they have had several camp outs and learned how to safely shoot a weapon. He learned the basics of scuba diving, how to rock climb, and survival skills (including how to trap and eat a rabbit and which plants are edible)
