|Tools for this tag
This tag is to be used to map the locations where various Youth Cadet groups meet, together with details of each group.
Cadet clubs are primarily for older children, usually aged between 12 and 18 years old, and are intended to introduce them to the operations of many organisations. These include the emergency services (e.g. police, fire, and ambulance) and the military (e.g. navy, army, and air force). They are broadly similar, but also somewhat different, to Scouts / Guides clubs, teaching skills such as team work and leadership, as well as service-specific skills such as first-aid or sailing.
Cadet units can be found in a variety of locations: in the operational station, or military base, of their parent group; within the grounds of secondary schools and colleges; and in community centres.
How to map
If the group shares space in a multi-use building e.g. an operational emergency station, school or community centre, map the building itself using an appropriate building value, then add a node to that building as: club=cadet + cadet=*. If multiple cadet groups share a building (e.g., army and air cadets), use a node for each cadet group and add details for each.
Be sure to not incorrectly tag buildings simply based on the type of cadet group that is housed there. A building housing military cadets should not be tagged with landuse=military unless located on an actual military base. Similarly, cadet buildings are not to be tagged as police, fire or ambulance stations unless they actually carry out this function.
Tagging will be in the format:
club=cadet + cadet=* = Police / Fire / Ambulance / SES etc, based on the it's parent group; or, for Military cadets, as cadet=military + military_service=* - Navy / Army / Air / Joint.
The format of the name will be what each Group is known as e.g. Currumbin Nippers
If you know the Wikidata code for that operator, that can also be included as: operator:wikidata=*
Use the normal opening_hours=* tag to show what time/s the Group meets i.e. the time that the Cadets are usually there, not permanent staff / instructors e.g. opening_hours=Tu 18:00-21:00
