Activities and events

Cheshire Fire Cadets in Nepal

As a Cheshire Fire Cadet you will learn about the Fire and Rescue Service and you can take part in many other activities including outdoor sports, camps, social trips, fundraising and community events. Some Fire cadets have even made visits abroad to communities in Northern Ireland, Germany and Ghana

As well as events organised for all of our cadets, our cadet units are regularly out and about doing activities.  For details about what cadets are up to in your home town find out more about your local unit.

International projects

In 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2013 a team of cadets visited Ghana to help to build and refurbish schools. The cost of the construction of the schools is paid for by donations and by cadets fund raising.

At the end of October 2017 the cadets are heading to Nepal to help finish off much needed classrooms at a village school. The cadets have been fundraising for two years to raise the money for a project to build six classrooms on the side of a school in Kangel, which is in the Solukhumbu District in the Sagarmatha Zone of North-Eastern Nepal.

Cadets - summer camp

Summer camp is an exciting opportunity for Fire Cadets to take part in a host of exciting activities from climbing through to canoeing, whilst meeting other Fire Cadets and making new friends.  Cadet camp is normally run for a week during the school summer holidays with accommodation varying from dormitories through to tents depending on the location.  Camp provides a new way for young people to take on new challenges!
