SEA scouts from across the Mornington Peninsula will gather in Mornington this Sunday (18 February) as 2nd Mornington Sea Scouts hosts its inaugural carnival day at Scouts Beach.
Group leader Dan Power said the day would be packed with water and beach activities and would be a great chance for sea scouts to show their skills on a family-friendly day out.
“Our beach carnival will include a number of events – canoe and kayak regattas, beach activities, including beach sprints, obstacle course, sandcastle battle, wading, and more. Each of these activities will be run in rounds via a knockout system – a bit of friendly competition,” he said.
Power said sea scouts was a way for young people to make friends, learn skills and stay active.
“We expect to have about 50 t0 70 young people, around 15 leaders, as well as the Lions club coming down, so It will be a great day,” he said.
The event will run from 9am to 1pm.
Mornington Sea Scouts has been part of the Mornington community since 1953.
