Who are we?
The Pelican Point Sea Scout Group is located at the end of Australia II Drive, next to the University of Western Australia, Crawley, Western Australia. Formerly known as the 1st W.A. Troop Sea Scouts, the group has been in continuous operation since 1913 and over that period has helped shape the lives of thousands of young people.
Camp Cornwell, the group’s headquarters offers beach access to the majestic Swan River, with great views to the City. In support of our youth programme, the group operates and maintains a sizeable fleet of boats ranging from rowing tenders and specialised sail training dinghies through cruising yachts and motor launches.
How are we proceeding? Here’s how!
We know the rules; we will be abiding by the gazetted government and Scouts WA regulations.
We have measured the spaces and the sections can be accommodated in their normal locations. Several leaders have completed the infection control training recommended by Scouts WA.
Unwell youth members or family
Under no circumstances should anyone who is unwell, or who appears to be unwell, come onto the site. We ask that you exercise extraordinary caution and keep your child home if they are unwell. Additionally, it is best if children stay home if there is sickness in the family or household. We want to avoid spreading infection of any sort so that we can keep the group functioning.
Building a culture of care and respect
Leaders will be actively encouraging Scouts to keep their distance, wash and sanitise hands regularly, cover coughs and use tissues. Everyone should bring and use a personal water bottle. Hand sanitisers will be stationed at every doorway, for use before entry, including the toilets.
We will support each other by advising of any health issues and staying away if need be.
The Group offers all sections of scouting, catering for children from an age of 6 years through to young adults at 26 years with a particular focus on marine activities:
Joey Scouts: 6-8yrs
Cub Scouts: 8-11yrs
Venturer Scouts: 15-18yrs
Rover Scouts: 18-26yrs
Volunteering and Donations
Our youth programme is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds and financial donations from members of the local community. We’re always on the lookout for more volunteers—if you’re interested in contributing either in person or financially then see here.
