Welcome to the Southern California Cadet Council Website!

THANK YOU for visiting our website.

Consisting of clubs supported by local churches from Los Angeles, to Riverside, to Orange and San Diego counties, the Southern California Cadet Council has been involved in youth ministry for over 50 years.

Cadets is a weeknight program that meets weekly or 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.  

Feel free to browse through the website.  For more information about the council and individual clubs, visit our History and Organization page.  Each club has its own page and provides information about that club, e.g., its meeting times, activities, etc.  Events hosted at a council level are also highlighted under the Events page and our calendar provides information on upcoming events.

If you would like to receive information about the Southern California Cadet Council or how to start a club here in Southern California, please comment on the Contacts page.  We look forward to discussing Cadets with you as a means for “Helping Boys to become more Christlike in all Areas of Life”.
