Following the advice of The Scout Association, Batchworth Sea Scouts suspended all face-to-face scouting activities in late March. This includes our weekly Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer scout meetings plus fundraising events and camps. Our waiting lists remain open for applicants, pending the resumption of a full scouting programme when appropriate.
Batchworth Sea Scouts is part of the Scout Association and have active Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers sections covering ages 6 to 18, all of which meet regularly at our Headquarters on Riverside Drive in Rickmansworth.
From kayaking down rapids to climbing rock faces; wild camping on Dartmoor to yacht sailing on the South Coast – we do it all.
Scouting has never been so popular. All our sections operate a waiting list for prospective young members and we encourage you to contact us early in order to register your child with us.
Increasing the number of adult leaders and helpers at Batchworth would allow us to deliver the programme of activities we would like for the young people in the area.
Volunteers need no previous experience in Scouting; full training and support is provided and you don’t need to be a current parent either. From 18 upwards, age is no barrier. You only need to commit as much or as little time as you can and you can fit volunteering around your work and family commitments.
More to the point, it’s fun. And not just for the kids…!
