Powerboating Courses for Adult Volunteers

Scouting depends on our Adult Volunteers, and the Royal Navy are dedicated to empowering our volunteers to pass on expertise to our youth members. For this reason, they have opened up 2017 Powerboating Courses in Saltash, Cornwall, with two spots on each. To apply, please fill out and submit this form.

Sea Cadet Activity Weeks for Scouts, Explorers and Adult Volunteers

For our Youth Member, the Navy have also negotiated spots on weeks away at the Sea Cadet Training Centre in Weymouth. There are 24 Male and 24 Female spots on each for Scouts, and 12 spots for Leaders to accompany them. These are offered at a heavily reduced price - so please learn more and submit your application for places with this form.

The Royal Navy have supported The Scout Association for many years, and in 2017 we have the pleasure of introducing the Royal Navy as our partner for the Time on the Water Staged Badge.
