Join the adventure

For action and adventure, fun and friendship, the Army Cadet Force is hard to beat. With 41,000 cadets (aged 12-18) and 9,500 adults in over 1,600 locations in every corner of the United Kingdom, the ACF is one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations.

The Army Cadet Force is organising Open Day events across Scotland, giving you the chance to come and find out what we are all about.

What can you expect?

There will be demonstrations, presentations… plus opportunities to ask questions and to find out more about what makes the Army Cadets so popular.

So if you are thinking about helping and leading young people in your area by volunteering as an adult, or you think you may enjoy becoming an Army Cadet yourself, our Open Days are just for you. Parents are welcome too, of course!

We hope to see you there.
