The scout section at Batchworth Sea Scouts is unique within the area. With the focus on being outdoors and active all year round, our section meetings are Saturday afternoons. This allows us to plan an adventurous and rewarding programme of activities which cater for our core age range of 10 to 14 years.
Whilst water activities are a central theme to our programme, we are equally engaged in various events ashore! During a typical year, we may spend over 10 nights away on camps and team competitions; which include the annual ‘Green Beret’ challenge and ‘Nimrod’ night exercise. Our summer camp each August provides our members with a chance to excel away from home, bonding with other members as they explore their own capabilities.
The young members are arranged within separate Patrol groups, with a Patrol Leader taking the lead within their small team. Batchworth Sea Scouts strongly believes in providing equal opportunities to all young people within our local area and implement the stringent safeguarding procedures of the Scout Association. All activities are likewise supervised by an experienced team in accordance with established guidelines. Please see Scouting for All for more details.
Join the Fun!
Such is our popularly, the section currently runs a waiting list for new members wishing to join from outside of the group. However, we want to open up additional capacity by growing our adult support team. Appointing new leaders, instructors and parent volunteers is an on-going process, meaning we have a mature training and mentoring programme in place to help you realise your ambitions as an adult within scouting. Please see our Volunteering page for more details.
