The Sea Cadet Program offered by RCSCC Quinte is a only possible through a partnership between the Canadian Forces (CF) and the Navy League of Canada. While instructors, uniforms and core training is provided by the CF, our building, boats, instruments and much of the opportunities we are able to provide outside of the core curriculum are only available because of the hard work of the Belleville Branch of the Navy League of Canada. This group, which has been serving the Quinte Region since the 1930's, is made up of dedicated volunteers with an interest in the Cadet Program and our broader naval community.
