The Calvinist Cadet Corps has been around since 1952. We have a long history of helping boys grow more Christlike in all areas of life. Along the way, we’ve witnessed a lot of history and a lot of change. Times – and technology – have changed, and while the Corps remains committed to our mission, we have made adjustments in how we operate and communicate.
One significant change has been to the online presence of the Corps. While we’ve had our domain name since 2002, it took us a few years to establish an actual website. Eventually, the main Corps website has progressed to what you see today – a website that we hope gives visitors a good idea of what the Calvinist Cadet Corps is all about. Whether visitors are familiar with Cadets or not, we hope this website provides a place where they can learn more and be directed to further resources.
But our main website isn’t the only online presence we’ve established. Over the years, we’ve developed several websites and social media profiles to help inform – and entertain – our cadets and counselors as well as friends and families of cadets.
Another website that gets a lot of use is the one we’ve dedicated solely to helping counselors. If you are a counselor, please make sure to get a login for this website. It is crammed full of useful resources, from counselors-only newsletters and communications, to project ideas, to administrative forms, nearly everything we have to help counselors has been put online on the counselor website.
Along with the counselor website, we’ve developed online stores that allow counselors in the United States and Canada to order their club supplies and supporting materials online. If you’re not a counselor, you can still order Cadet-branded merchandise as gifts for your cadets or donate directly to the Calvinist Cadet Corps.
Finally, our latest online website is designed especially for cadets – CadetZone. Cadets can get access to CadetZone through their counselors, so if you’re a cadet and haven’t checked it out yet – you might want to talk to your counselor. Once logged in, cadets can find and preview merit badges to decide which ones they’d like to work toward. Cadets can also find bonus material from the Cadet Quest magazine on CadetZone.
So, those are the websites that together make up the Calvinist Cadet Corps online presence. That’s not our WHOLE online presence, though – we’re on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube as well, so be sure to follow us! Even better, get your counselor to send us photos of your cadre so we can post them online for everyone to enjoy!
We pray that our websites and social media profiles will continue to be effective tools as we help boys grow more Christlike in all areas of life.
