Welcome to Cadets! Cadets is a ministry program for boys entering grades 2 - 7. We, the counsellors look forward to an exciting year! Our meeting schedule is outlined here. Some of our extra activities will focus on this theme. A number of extra off-site activities are also planned such as swimming, a winter hike, gym nights, and more! You will find the latest program details, updates and resources here on the website. Sharing the joy and wisdom of Christlike living with boys is central to the Cadet ministry at Willoughby Church.
Our theme this year is: Hi God! It's ME! (Click here for more info). The theme text this year is "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." Jeremiah 29:12
Our club is made up of several small groups of about five or six boys. Each group is led by a counselor. Counselors challenge, guide, encourage, listen and counsel the boys as an expression of God's love.
On club nights, boys and their counselors work side by side on Bible lessons, service projects, outdoor activities (camping, cycling, hiking, canoeing, and much more), and merit badge projects (Cadet Badges) -- selecting from a wide range of interests and skills.
Cadets generally meet every other Wednesday evening, Sept-May from 7 - 9 pm at the church. We ask that the boys arrive no sooner than ten minutes (6:50 pm) before the start of cadets and are picked up no later than ten minutes after (8:55 pm).

Willoughby Church Cadet Ministry is part of The Calvinist Cadet Corps: an independent (non-denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with a ministry program that will enable them to effectively share Christ's love with boys from their church and community.
