CFA Cadets Camp 2024

Member News image Our 2023 Cadets at VEMTC for live fire drills


CFA Cadet camps for 16 and 17-year-old CFA members were launched in 2019.


These camps bring CFA's youngest senior members together to enhance their firefighting skills and knowledge and give them some practical, hands-on fire training. The youngsters also gain teamwork and leadership skills. 

Camps are free to attend and applications are now open for the 2024 camps. CFA encourages its members who will be 16 or 17 years old during the camp dates to sign up. It doesn't matter what your current level of training is - whether you've finished the General Firefighter training or just started. All levels are welcome.

If you've attended a previous camp you can attend another, though priority will be given to those who haven't been to one. 

When: 31 May 2024 to 2 June 2024
Who: 16 and 17-year-old members (born between 3/6/2006 and 31/05/2008)
Cost: Free
Where: Lady Northcote Discovery Camp, Glenmore
