36th E.F.S. (Royal Navy Recognised Group 16) Sea Scout Troop

Epping Forest South District

Royal Navy Recognised Group 16

The Sea Scout Section is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs, and is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years.

The Sea Scout Troop meets weekly under the guidance of a trained adult leadership team who run the Troop in conjunction with senior Scouts (the Patrol Leaders). The Troop is divided into smaller units – Patrols – of up to 8 Scouts led by a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader. Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their balanced programme. Recent activities that we have taken part in include Climbing, Abseiling, Canoeing, Sailing, Camping, Hiking, Shooting, Survival Skills and many more. 

As Scouts progress through the section they will have many opportunities to gain Challenge Awards and Activity Badges including Boating Skills, First Aid, Athletics, Hiking to name but a few. Scouts are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and each other. We run many activities, which aim to build upon core skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership.

Activities

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 his or her achievements there are a number of Challenge awards and activity badges.

 

Balanced Programme

Scouts take part in a Balanced Programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit, and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.

Being outdoors is important, and half the programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing


Structure

A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
