Boating

Boating in South Australian scouting has a rich tradition through its many Sea Scout groups. While Sea Scout groups typically deliver a strong program emphasis on water based activities, boating activities and events are typically open to all.

Protected coastal areas of South Australia and the Murray River waterways lend themselves well to all kinds of sailing and rowing skill development and journeys.

How to make it happen

All scouting activities are subject to Scouting policies and procedures. Adult Leaders are responsible for ensuring the safety of Scouts and the compliance of activities and undertakings with Scouting policies and procedures.
