About Us

NSCC AEGIS Division has been in continuous operation for more than 50 years.  It has previously been known as the Kitty Hawk Division and Training Ship Katherine Walker.  We are one of many units of the US Naval Sea Cadet Corps located in New Jersey, and we are the only unit located in Burlington County.  We drill at the Navy Operational Support Center at Fort Dix on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

Our staff consists of primarily civilian volunteers who donate their time to provide a quality training experience for our cadets.  Currently, the unit has five adult staff members.
