Want to have fun and make new friends?

Do you feel like you’re living your best life? Wondering if you’re missing out on fun, friendship and adventure? Why not try something new and join the UK’s best kept secret; The Army Cadets.

Nowadays so much time is spent on social media. Following our friends, influencers etc. Trying to get the best photo to upload, maybe adding a filter to make the image look more exciting, but isn’t there more to life?

In the Army Cadets you’ll get to experience so many things. From adventurous training, such as kayaking, climbing and navigation to summer camps and joining a band (if you’re musically minded) and learning First Aid. As well as exciting activities, young people who go to Army Cadets tend to perform better at school and develop key life skills, such as discipline, leadership and teambuilding.

Army Cadets is not a stepping stone into the Army (although we do offer support if a Cadet is interested), it is simply a fantastic youth organisation that incorporates a military theme amongst other things.

For more information find your local detachment.

Want to be one of our amazing volunteers?

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the organisation. Without them, we would not be able to provide young people with a fun and adventurous experience. We are always looking for new volunteers. You don’t need military experience to be a Cadet Force Adult Volunteer (CFAV), you just need to have a passion for making a difference to young people’s lives.

There are so many benefits to joining as a volunteer. Not only will you be able to try out fun activities and meet new people, you’ll also get to develop your own skills, many of which are transferrable to your life outside of the Army Cadets.

Find out more about becoming a CFAV.
