Through various activities and adventures, we learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of ourselves.

And many more!!

Here at Trinity we offer skills and qualifications that could take you around the world. We create a safe, engaging and fun learning environment that will give you memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Sea Cadets (12-18 year old)

Get to grips with subjects both on water and land as part of basic training, all on a nautical theme. You can take part in courses and competitions ranging from rock climbing and shooting to music, power boating and sailing. These can give you a head start in life and boost your confidence, plus it's good fun.

What does it cost?

It depends on the unit, but all charges are very low and heavily subsidised. We are determined that nobody should miss out because they can’t afford it, and help is always available. There are charges for training courses and camps but these are kept to a minimum. Sometimes you can get a bursary or grant for activities like our week-long voyages sailing offshore.

How to Join...

Get in touch and we’ll be really happy to arrange a visit, so you can look round the unit and see what’s involved, and speak to volunteers and cadets, before deciding if you’d like to join. If you do, there’s an application form to fill out which the unit can go through with you.
