The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, sponsored by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, is a federally chartered nonprofit civilian youth training organization for ages 11 through 17. Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay hosts the Kings Bay Division which is sponsored by the Camden-Kings Bay Navy League Council. During the school year, Sea Cadets attend monthly drills. During winter, spring and summer breaks, the cadets have the opportunity to attend trainings both here at Kings Bay as well as across the nation.
The goals of the program are to develop an interest and ability in seamanship, instill principles of strong moral principles, and demonstrate the value of an alcohol, drug and gang-free lifestyle. Sea Cadets are also exposed to the prestige of a military career while learning to be leaders in all aspects of their lives.
