About The Publication:

“Cadet Quest is a 24-page magazine for boys ages 9 – 14. It is a Christian-oriented magazine for members of a Christian youth organization known as the Calvinist Cadet Corps.

“Active adventure combined with humor. Please don’t send the same old, same old… river rescues, boys lost, boy saving his family during a crisis, etc. Have a Christian basis for what is being done, not just that the kid is being a good kid. Please make your stories fun to read, and realistic. Fiction should fit our current themes. We are always looking for articles on Christians making a mark in this world – sports, music, and volunteer work. Things that make a difference to people around them.”
