California Cadet Corps


The Cadet Youth Foundation (CYF) is an associated non-profit organization that provides cadets with financial assistance for summer camp and purchases items that can not be obtained with state funds.  The CYF relies on donations and memberships to do this, there are life time memberships avaliable for a one time donation of $1000,  there are currently six life time members.  As Summer Camp approaches the CYF is seeking donations and members to help fund this experience.
