The Cadet Quest is a Christian-oriented magazine for boys ages 9-14 published by the Calvinist Cadet Corps. Using seven theme-driven issues every year, its purpose is to show how God is working in the lives of boys and in the world around them.
To put together a season’s worth of issues, we need content. If you like to write and can write well, send us your articles and stories. If you have friends who are writers, please share this with them.
We’re looking for fiction and non-fiction material that is Christian-oriented without being too preachy. We want wholesome, Christian, age-appropriate stories that will appeal to active, imaginative boys.
We’re not just looking for longer stories, either – we’re also in need of jokes, puzzles, projects, and news stories that feature Cadets. If you or your cadets want to contribute, we want to hear from you!
We’re especially interested in material that addresses the theme of that issue. Here are the themes for upcoming issues of Cadet Quest:
- September/October 2021: God’s In Control (our 2021-2022 Cadets theme)
- November 2021: Schools Around the World
- December 2021: Health and Fitness
- January 2022: Racism
- February 2022: Weird and Wacky Sports
- March 2022: Ukraine
- April/May 2022: Bugs
