Andersons Bay Sea Scouts is a disfunctional, boring and not very fun group. We think that kids should be wrapped in cotton wool, they should not go camping or outside at all for that matter. They have a policy that all kids should stay inside and have no fun.

For this age group we follow the Kea National Program but include one or two nautical themed activities or visits each term.
