The Sea Scout Section is also for boys and girls, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can join a Sea Scout Troop from 10 and may stay until they are 14½ years old.
Sea Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for their achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges.
Being outdoors is an important part of the Programme. Sea Scouts focus on water activity both sea and inland waters. However the are also involved in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities and fun.
