This is the only recruit induction center in the Coast Guard.

All families and friends of graduating recruits are invited to attend their graduation ceremony. Plan to arrive at Training Center Cape May at 9:30 a.m. on graduation day. Upon arrival, you will be directed to Ida Lewis Auditorium, where we will provide you with an overview of the mornings activities and a short presentation about recruit training. This program includes a movie, shown at 10:00. A small gift shop and beverage services are available in the auditorium. Graduation is a formal military ceremony that begins promptly at 11:00 and lasts about an hour. At the ceremony conclusion, the newly promoted Seaman Apprentices and Fireman Apprentices are free to depart on ten days of well-deserved leave before reporting to her or his new duty station.
