Welcome to NLCC COMPASS ROSE Website!
NLCC Compass Rose is a FREE youth program for 9-12 year old. Our goal is to develop good mental and moral training, while encouraging patriotism, good citizenship, a sense of duty, discipline, respect to self and others in a Naval environment suited for young people.
Our corps (pronounced “core” — that’s what we call each group) meets every Wednesday evening from September to June. We host occasional weekend activities (parades, trips or overnight events), as well.
IS IT A MILITARY PROGRAM?
No. The Navy League of Canada is a civilian organization. Our cadet program uses a naval theme as a platform to develop good citizenship, leadership, a sense of duty, self-discipline, teamwork, healthy living and respect for others.
HOW MUCH DOES THE PROGRAM COST?
At Compass Rose all corps activities are free. To help fund Navy League programs and cover the costs of uniforms, cadets and their parents are required to participate in fundraising activities.
DO CADETS HAVE TO BUY UNIFORMS?
No. Cadets are required to maintain their uniforms and return them when they leave the program. Cadets and their parents are responsible to pay for lost or damaged items that have been loaned to them.
