About Our County

Cumbria Army Cadet force gives young people – from all walks of life – fun, friendship, action and adventure. We challenge our cadets to learn more, do more and try more. We inspire them to aim higher and go further in life no matter what they aim to do. They gain new skills, experience opportunities and embark on adventures that others can only dream about. We have a serious attitude to safety which allows us to offer a wide and diverse range of activities, from shooting to kayaking, to sleeping out in the woods under a basher and much more besides. Our volunteers offer a huge range of training, qualifications and challenges. They inspire young people to challenge their limits, become more independent, confident and able to step up to any challenge.
