There is a lot of enthusiasm on the part of young boys to begin their journey through the Cadet programs. They've heard their older brothers or older boys in the community talk about the campouts, crafts, Bible lessons, and service projects, and they are READY! Junior Cadets taps this enthusiasm with a "hit the ground running" type of program. The materials are comprehensive but concise. They are designed to effectively channel the energy of boys in grades 1 - 3 (ages 6, 7, and 8-year-olds). Clubs meet weekly or bi-weekly, with some clubs meeting after school and others in the evening.
