The Army Cadet Force (ACF) has over 41,000 cadets in more than 1,600 detachments all over the country and is one of the biggest and best clubs around. When it comes to fun, friendship, action and adventure, it’s hard to find anything that beats the Army Cadets.
Become an Army Cadet and you’ll be spending your spare time taking part in adventurous activities like rock climbing, mountain biking, archery and abseiling. There will also be plenty of chance to play all your favourite sports because the ACF has competitions for both boys and girls at county, regional and national level.
OK, so you might end up a little wet and muddy, but wouldn’t you rather be having the time of your life with some great new mates, instead of just sitting in front of a TV or computer alone in your room?
Being an Army Cadet means that you get to do lots of activities you wouldn’t normally do. You won’t be part of the Army, though you will get a uniform, free of charge, and will just have to get yourself some good boots. Activities are provided at very low cost or even free.
If you’ve ever wanted to do the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, that’s something we can help you with, and your cadet activities can even count towards proper qualifications like BTEC First Diplomas, which are equivalent to four GCSEs.
But above all, being an Army Cadet is about having fun and making good friends.
To join Army Cadets as a young person you need to be 12 years old (and in year 8 of school) up to 18 years old.
if you are over 18 years you can enquire about volunteering with us.
