The Cadet Quest is a Christian magazine for boys ages 9-14 published by the Calvinist Cadet Corps. It is designed to show boys how God is working in their lives and in the world around them using seven theme-driven issues every year.
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 opportunity with them.
We’re looking for fiction and non-fiction material that is Christian-oriented without being too preachy. We want wholesome, age-appropriate stories that will appeal to active, imaginative boys.
We’re not just looking for longer stories and articles, 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 2022: Amazing (our 2022-2023 Cadets theme)
- November 2022: Anatomy
- December 2022: Grace
- January 2023: Places
- February 2023: Architecture
- March 2023: Sounds
- April/May 2023: Animals
For a full explanation of these themes, please download our 2022-2023 Cadet Quest theme list.
