Cadet Boys Club

Cadets is a club for boys in 4th through 8th grades which meets on Wednesday evenings. The theme for 2016-2017 is "Get in the Game," along with the theme verse, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith." (Hebrews 12:1-2a)

A typical night of Cadets begins with opening exercises, which includes prayer and the reciting of pledges, codes, and the Cadet verse: John 14:15.

After opening exercises, the cadets and counselors spend about 30 minutes in Bible study. The rest of the evening is spent doing crafts such as knots and lashing, first aid, marksmanship, campfire building, campfire cooking, Bible knowledge, etc.
