73% of cadets say that Adventurous Training is one of the activities they enjoy most
Being a cadet in the Army Cadet Force means you get the opportunity to take part in a wide range of Adventurous Training (AT) opportunities, including abseiling, caving, kayaking, open canoeing, rock-climbing, mountain walking, skiing, mountaineering, diving and white-water rafting. Depending on where you live, this can happen during the year but it is always one of the highlights of annual camp.
When you become a senior cadet (aged 16+) you can take courses in mountaineering (summer, winter, alpine), canoeing (kayak, canoe, sea), caving, climbing (rock and winter), mountain biking and skiing. The training is very highly regarded and all results in fully accredited National Governing Body or Joint Service Adventurous Training qualifications.
Our centre of excellence, the Cadet Centre for Adventurous Training (CCAT) at Capel Curig in North Wales was established to ensure we have enough qualified instructors to offer you the full range of activities.
