Army Cadets



In the North East we have 3 Army Cadet Force Counties: Cleveland, Durham and Northumbria.

"The Army Cadet Force (ACF) has over 46,000 cadets in almost 1,700 detachments all over the country and is one of the biggest and best gangs around. When it comes to action, excitement 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?"
