Military-based activities for high-school-aged students
Challenge yourself. On sea and land.
Navy cadets is the perfect answer for active teenagers.
Navy cadets is about fun, friendship, action and adventure. We inspire young people to challenge their limits and go further in life, no matter what they aim to do.
From the age of 13 years (or year 9+) to 20 years, Navy Cadets is a leadership and activity-based programme run independently of, but alongside the New Zealand Defence Force.
As cadets progress through Navy cadets they have opportunities to go to sea with the Navy on the HMNZS vessels or travel overseas on exchange trips to visit cadet forces in other countries.
But all they think is that they’re having fun. Including sailing, tramping, shooting, bush-craft, camps, first aid and sea survival skills.
Confronting challenges, both physical and moral, to overcome any adversity.
Being reliable and loyally serving and supporting the NZ Cadet Forces, local communities and New Zealand.
Looking out for each other, having respect for all, and championing the benefits of friendship, teamwork and diversity.
Having self-discipline and always being honest, trustworthy and responsible.
