US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Recruit Training Camp - New England


On 27 July 2003, new recruits from NCBC Division joined with nearly 300 of their shipmates to engage in two weeks of intensive training at Camp Edwards, located in Cape Cod, MA at the Massachusetts Military Reservation. Recruit Training (commonly referred to as "Boot Camp") in New England is a highly challenging and rewarding experience for both cadets and staff. The location at Camp Edwards offers access to necessary and challenging facilities that greatly enhance the RTC experience. Adult supervision and instruction is top notch - certainly among the best that the Sea Cadet program has to offer. Most importantly the final product, the graduates, represent the best-trained and most highly motivated group of cadets in the Corps. The goals of Recruit Training are straightforward:
  • To provide basic military training to cadets entering the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) which will allow them to perform and excel during their tenure with the Corps.
  • To provide training and leadership experience to NSCC senior cadets and provide them with an opportunity to utilize their abilities in a supervised military environment.
  • To maintain the high level of training that is consistent within the area units, and provide the recruits with an atmosphere of respect, support, and esprit de corps.
