As an active Sea Scout troop, we get up to all sorts of exciting and adventurous activities, both in our regular meetings and on water activities, camps, trips and visits.
Sea Scouting has the same purpose and goals as any other Scout Troop, however the main difference lays in the method of delivery.
This is because in Sea Scouting, water and nautical activities are used as the basis of delivering the Balanced Programme. Although most Scouts have the opportunity for boating activities, such as sailing and canoeing, the Sea Scout programme puts considerable emphasis on water activities and also incorporates many aspects of naval and nautical traditions.
As Sea Scouts we are on the water most of the time, however, we are always working towards the new challenge badges so all our troop get a chance to be awarded the highest award in the Scout section: The Gold Chief Scout Award.
