Wakefield Sea Cadets

Wakefield, UK
We use a nautical theme to help youngsters become
responsible adults, based on the traditions of the Royal
Navy, giving Cadets an opportunity to progress and take
up positions of responsibility as they acquire skills and
seniority. A great chance to develop life skills and meet new people
