The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years of age.
We offer a Balanced Programme that the same for all Scouts. As Sea Scouts we simply take a more nautical direction in many aspects of the programme. This could involve expeditions on water instead of land, looking at maritime environmental issues, or community service with some kind of maritime focus.
The importance of the outdoors in the Scout programme is further strengthened as a variety of water-based activities is offered, including kayaking, sailing, pulling (fixed seat rowing) rafting, power boating and much more.
We also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes, Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. The emphasis is on taking part and there are a number of badges and awards Scouts can work towards to recognise their commitment and achievements.
Being outdoors is important in the Scout Section and half the Programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wide range of adventurous activities, which can include anything from abseiling to yachting.
Young people may stay in the Scout Section until the age of 14½ at the latest before moving on to Explorer Scouts.
