Lancashire Army Cadets have formed a charity to help support our exciting and ambitious programme of adventure and self-develpment. We believe that we represent exceptional value for money and we hope that you feel the same way. Our two week annual camp cost just £50, including three meals a day and includes access to exceptional training - many commercially run adventurous holiday activities for children cost more than that each day.
Recently, we have sent cadets from all over the county to France, Belgium, Germany and Holland. Cadets have marched, parachuted, kayaked, climbed and caved. We also run the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. We also provide BTECs and First Aid at Work training. But all of these activities come at a cost, to help us give all the children in Lancashire Army Cadets the opportunity to take part in these exciting adventures, we set up Friends of Lancashire Army Cadets to help us meet these costs.
These activities may include, Adventurous Training Equipment, Adventurous Activities, Overseas Travel, exciting Expeditions - including the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme -and other similar activities. To give you an idea of what's coming up and where we'll be using the money in 2017, we are planning on sending a team to the 160km Nijmegen March in Holland, Canoeing Expedition in Scotland, hiking in Bavaria and Adventure Training in North Wales.
