Samford Army Cadets Open Night
27 July @ 06:30 - 21:30FREE
As the focus of a national leading youth development organisation, cadets learn skills in communications, bushcraft, first aid, leadership, drill, navigation, team-building and more. These skills are passed on cadet-to-cadet with mentorship by veterans and parents of the community to provide them with life skills, growth, enhanced self-esteem, self-discipline, and adventurous enjoyment in a military setting.
Support from the Australian Army outfits each cadet with uniforms and equipment free of expense, as well as various activities and a week long annual camp for cadet attendees across South Queensland. We share in the values of Courage, Initiative, Respect and Teamwork of the Australian Army.
107 ACU was first formed as 7 Military Cadet Unit in July 2015, parading at the Samford RSL. Most units of the independent, community run Military Cadets organisation amalgamated with the Australian Army Cadets on 1st of April 2017, making 107 ACU a young unit to the likes of some that are over a century old in the organisation. The Unit currently parades at the Samford Scout Den.
