The 202 Chilcotin Sea Cadet Corps could be in danger of shutting down after 48 years if more youths, volunteers and staff don’t soon come on board, the organization said in a release.

“During the past two years there has been a loss in enrollment due to attrition and loss of parental involvement,” the release states.

In its 48-year existence the Chilcotin 202 Royal Canadian Sea Cadets have provided hundreds of youth in the community between the ages of 12 to 18 with opportunities in leadership, public speaking, community involvement, friendship, sailing, seamanship competitions, training, boating, first aid, music, summer camps, travel, military marching and parades.

Additionally, all of these activities are free to join and are readily available to cadets.

For more information on location, meeting times and how you can get involved or join call 250-392-2834.
