Cornwall Army Cadets are back!

Cornwall Army Cadets are back!

  • Cornwall ACF

Cornwall Army Cadets have been back training and getting used to the new procedures for a couple of weeks. This is result of much preparation and risk assessment work by senior staff, Detachment Commanders and staff which begun last year, and now updated and reviewed.

Cadets can now train in ‘bubbles’ without restrictions on numbers. There is social distancing indoors and out, the wearing of masks indoors, the use of hand sanitizer and wiping down of surfaces. None of this has spoiled the great atmosphere at Detachments, with cadets and adults delighted to be able to see each other again and welcoming new members.


It is clear that most cadets are greatly looking forward to annual camp at the end of July, which promises an extremely exciting line up of events, action and adventure. Including a Adventure training package and field craft. Next month, they will have the opportunity to attend a pre-camp training weekend where they will get to be with their friends, the perfect antidote to so many months stuck at home.

I’m not sure who is more excited to be back, the cadets or us adult volunteers!

Company Serjeant Major Gavin Tyler said, “Although we have been doing some training on-line, it is so much better to get back to face to face training and have some fun. I’m not sure who is more excited to be back, the cadets or us adult volunteers!”

As an Army Cadet, young people can take part in shooting, rock climbing, kayaking, sports, achieve the Duke of Edinburgh awards, first aid, take part in Ten Tors or take trips abroad on exchanges or trips.
