About Us


Sea Scouting is a branch of Scouting, not a separate organisation. It is based on the same fundamental Scouting Aims & Methods.

Sea Scouts follow the core balanced programme for their section but then add a nautical twist to the programme and activities.  It is not training for the Navy or the Merchant Navy careers, although Sea Scout training can be very useful for young people who are so interested.

Please read the Royal Navy and Group History pages for more details on our heritage.

Covid-19 and Scouting

Batchworth Sea Scouts follows the advice of The Scout Association in relation to the safe delivery of Scouting, who in turn work with The National Youth Agency to translate Government advice into governance rules.  They have implemented a tiered Readiness Level, controlling the type of activities that can be delivered based on local conditions.

We are currently at GREEN readiness level meaning only limited formal restrictions apply to our activities.

We are still required to consider all risks associated with Covid and to mitigate these as appropriate, but we are looking forward to conducting a busy scouting programme this Autumn.

Meeting Times

Meeting times are subject to occasional amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery.
