The Overlord Academy is an adventure cadet club led by ex-army officers and designed for 7-16 year olds. It is a club full of fun and adventure where you get to learn skills from those who have served in the military. We meet up every week in school term times and there are 2 overnight expeditions we go on each year in the mountains or desert. There are three troops for different age groups. Patrollers for Age 7 to 9, Pioneers for Age 9 to 11 and Rangers for Age 12 to 16.
We are not the Scouts and we are not the Army Cadets. We are a new cadet club and a blend of both establishments. We are a fresh, hybrid search and rescue cadet force led by ex-British soldiers and officers. A more adventurous and modern feel to the Scouts with a military undertone from the army cadets is how we want to see ourselves. Our lessons are based on leadership principles from the military and we use scenarios from the armed forces to train in the outdoors to provide more excitement on our expeditions.
