Sea Scout Introduction

 
 
 
The Milford Sea Scout Troop is the first Scout Group run by Chinese Speaking Volunteers in New Zealand with the support from local Sea Scout leaders and NZ Scout Association since 2005. It targets Chinese youths aged 5 to 26 years. The Sea Scout movement arranges various water activities and competitions such as sailing, boating and kayaking in addition to land-based scout activities like camping and hiking throughout the year. Members learn about water safety and teamwork, as well as how to put up tents, make fires and various other outdoor skills.
 
The scout section meets every Friday evening and club/kea sections meet every Wednesday evening at Milford Sea Scout Centre. They practise their boating skills during weekends. We also organise camping, tramping and skiing activities during school holidays. A progressive award scheme enables members to learn a range of new skills through working on personal challenges and group activities. We believe that these activity-based learning experiences, provided in a safe and secure environment, helps young people develop into self-assured individuals, learning life skills and values that will help them become responsible adult citizens.
