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 Yellow readiness level allowing group sessions where precautions and social distancing are implemented, including small overnight expeditions.  We expect further changes in the coming months as the national picture evolves.

Leaders continue to work with parents to deliver the best scouting experience possible, whilst conforming to the current Readiness Level restrictions.

Thank you to everyone for your support in these times and please contact us with ideas, suggestions and requests.

Meeting Times

Currently, meeting times are subject to amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery within Covid restrictions.
