TO THE LOGAN CITY
COMMUNITY CADET UNIT
We are a community based Not For Profit cadet unit for young men and women aged between 11 and 17 years. The unit has an ethos of SERVE LEARN REMEMBER and is based on a military structure, values and disciplines. We are a volunteer organisation dedicated to providing a safe, fun yet challenging environment for today’s youth.
Our lessons teach the cadets self reliance and endurance through participation. It helps to build the confidence and self-esteem of the individual, while developing teamwork through necessity whilst in the field. We encourage and foster the potential of all children without prejudice, and promote the value of community service.
The unit has been operating within the community since 1998, and has won several awards for its work with children and the community. Most of our training staff are ex-military from the Australian Defence Force, so our training is based on several skill sets including the following:
Basic Field-Craft ~ Survival ~Navigation ~Safety ~ First Aid~ Drill~ Life Skills
