1st SHAPE International Scout Group




The 1st SHAPE (International) Scouts are adding a Sea Scout Troop for those aged 101/2 to 14. Sea Scouting has the same Purpose and Values as any other Scout Troop, and delivers the same varied Programme, but with a nautical twist. The SHAPE International Sea Scout Group includes both boys and girls from many nations, who participate in scouting activities.
All young people in Scouting have the opportunity to enjoy water activities, but in Sea Scouting, we focus on these activities, and many aspects of naval and nautical traditions are incorporated. Sea Scouts and Explorer Sea Scouts regularly get involved in a wide range of water activities from canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, to power boating and offshore sailing. Sea Scouts also find time for many of the traditional scouting activities, such as camping and hiking, and other activities within the Scouting Programme.

Leaders Required NOW! The Group are especially keen to recruit both new leaders and sailing instructors. Group Scout Leader Alan Sewell highlighted what a great experience being a Scout Leader was: "Being a Beaver, Cub or Scout Leader is a hugely rewarding activity that both adds to our SHAPE community and which gets us away from our desks, into the fresh air and helping to develop our amazing young people. Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouting as our young people”.

The Group has 4 Sections: 

Beavers (6–8) Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet on Wednesdays 1730-1830 to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it's a real adventure for them.


Cubs (8-10½) The Cub Scout Pack meets on Tuesdays at 1800-1930. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenge them. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


New Sections - starting spring 2017.

Sea Scouts (10½–14) The Sea Scouts will meet on Mondays at 1830-2000. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlights being sailing and camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, photography and international experiences are just some of the things Scouts get up to.

Sea Explorer Scouts (14–18) Explorers are encouraged to join the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections. Not only great fun, but also fantastic for personal development, for an interesting CV and for new, exciting experiences working with Explorers from elsewhere in Europe and beyond.

Section-night meetings are held in the Green Gym behind the SHAPE Healthcare Facility. For information please contact the Group Scout Leader, Al Sewell, on SHAPE 9915 or1stshapescoutsgsl@outlook.com  For more info go to http://scouts.org.uk/what-we-do/
