Cadets

What is Cadets?

Cadets is a weeknight program that meets bi-weekly in churches and helps boys become more Christlike in all areas of life. Each meeting includes assembling with the entire club for the landmarks, breaking up into small groups (called “cadres”) for Bible study and working on badges, and a time of games or other physical activity.

Our flexible programs incorporate Bible study and memorization, badge work and other hands-on projects, along with physical activity and outdoor adventure, to assist Christian men as they encourage boys to grow socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

The basis of the Calvinist Cadet Corps is the Bible according to the concepts expressed in the Heidelburg Catechism, the Canons of Dort, the Belgic Confession, and the Westminster Catechism.

The Trinity CRC Cadet Club is a part of a local council of other church cadet clubs called Greater Edmonton Cadet Council (GECC).

The Trinity Club offers programs for boys from grade two to grade nine. There is the Junior Cadet program for grades 2-3, and the Recruit/Pathfinder/Builder program for grades 4-9.
