Sea Scouts is our section for Boys & Girls aged 10.5 to 14 focused on scouting skills, but also includes water based activities such as sailing and canoeing.
At the 84th Reading Scout Group our Sea Scout Patrols meet on Fridays from 7pm to 9pm in our scout hut near St. Peter’s Church Hall, during school term times only.
The programme offers fun filled activities both in the hall and around the community, including games, hikes, community work, outdoor adventures, water sports and sleepover camps.
If you are interested in applying for a place for your child to join our Sea Scouts when they are old enough then please fill in a joining form and we will add them to our waiting list.
Places will be allocated based on our waiting list policy; we will contact you to confirm your child has been added to our waiting list and then if and when a space is available for your child to join.
If you are aged over 18 and would like to join our enthusiastic team of Leaders please fill in a volunteering form.
Purple Membership badge and green group badges are awarded when first invested.
Blue activity badges are earned in one or two sessions. Light blue activity badges are staged badges which have a number on – when sewing on a higher number the lower number badge should be removed.
Dark blue challenge badges require many sessions to complete and when all 9 have been collected they will earn the Chief Scout Gold award.
Badges are awarded at our badge ceremony at the end of each half-term.
Meeting times: Fridays 7:00pm – 9:00pm – arrive before 7:00pm.
Meeting every Fridays during school term times.
Meeting location: 84th Reading Scout Hut, behind St. Peter’s Church Hall, RG6 1EY.
But most Summer sessions will be at a sailing lake or around the local community.

Scouts join at the beginning of each team, and will make their scouting promise at the investing ceremony after attending at least 4 sessions. New Sea Scouts can wear normal clothes for the first few sessions, but should wear uniform once invested.
The uniform consists of a Scout shirt and 84th Reading neckerchief and a standard woggle, which all need to be purchased from the Woodley Scout Shop.
