The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a federally chartered non-profit development program for youth 11 year old through the completion of high school who have a desire to learn about the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines. This program is for youth thinking about joining the active duty military. There are no service obligations when participating in this organization.
The USNSCC is two programs.
The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for youth ages 13 through the completion of high school.
The Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) is for youth ages 11 through 13.
Lexington Division and Training Ship Colorado proudly serve Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska. Our organization encourages youth to develop an interest in basic seamanship.
Sea Cadets are authorized by the Secretary of the Navy to wear Navy uniforms appropriately marked with the Sea Cadet Corps insignia.
The Sea Cadet program introduces youth to naval life, to develop in them a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, and self-reliance, and to maintain an environment free of drugs and gangs.
Cadets normally meet for drill one weekend per month throughout the calendar year. We generally meet at the Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, CO.
We also hold drills and special events at offsite locations.
Cadets also have the opportunity to participate in special advanced training’s and boot camps around the country during the summer months and winter holidays.
