About Hadleigh Sea Scouts

Scouting offers challenge and adventure to over 6000 young people aged 6-25 in Suffolk alone. We believe in helping our members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. We’re working to make Scouting available to all and we’re passionate about what we do.

The aim of Scouting is to develop young people to their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential. Scouts should be able to learn new skills by taking part in fun and exciting activities in the air, on land or in water. Through the adventure of Scouting, the young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they’ll never forget!

The sort of adventure Scouting offers is the chance to experience something different and the opportunity to challenge yourself. When a Beaver Scout wakes up the morning after a sleepover, or a Cub Scout has just got over their fear of heights by completing a first abseil – that’s Adventure!

In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to zorbing (that’s rolling down a hill in a big beach ball in case you were wondering). If we don’t have an instructor who can help, we can normally find someone who can. But Scouting isn’t just about activities for their own sake. We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means. Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident? Would they do it again?

This is what it means to all those involved ….

All this is made possible by the efforts of over a 1000 adult volunteers in Suffolk alone. With an award winning training scheme in place and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make the best use of their skills and talents. It’s something different from the norm and that’s why a lot of people like it!

….  In fact, it’s what’s made us the largest co-educational youth movement in the country… ….

…….  ……and if you can help, we’d like you on-board, so …. “Join the Adventure”!
