Scouting readiness level is YELLOW as of 17th May 2021.

This means: Section meetings can take place outdoors and indoors. Limited small group residential activities may take place.

Maximum group size:

  • Activities involving young people: no limit on group size but remain as only one section meeting independently of others. Indoor activities will be limited by the size of the location given social distancing remains.
  • Scout Network programmed activities (non social): 30 people maximum.
  • Adult activities (non-social) with no young people present: Adults may meet in small groups for the purposes of providing the charity’s purpose. Full details in getting adults involved again guidance.
  • Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place with a maximum of 6 people within the group (including young people, volunteers and carers). COVID measures such as social distancing and good hygiene remain in place (even overnight), groups must remain independent of others and lateral flow testing must take place immediately prior to departure and every 48-72hrs throughout the trip and on return.

Note: Where small sections may struggle to be viable to operate independently they may join with another section at this time.

Royal Navy linked

Hythe Sea Scouts is proud to be linked to the Royal Navy as part of the Admiralty Recognition Scheme. Not only does this allow us to access funding for our activities but also allows us to visit RN sites and take part in events for RN Sea Scouts across the country. Over the last 10 years many of our members have gone on to have successful careers within the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy .

Funraising

We need you for us to succeed

Since our fundraising committee was formed in 2016, we have raised an outstanding £90,000. We are looking for passionate people who are up for a challenge. We have now secured our Scout Hut from erosion, strengthened our boathouse & had our toilets completely refurbished, among other projects. We have more projects which need funds so we can improve our facilities and equipment our young persons will benefit from.

Adult volunteers

Volunteering in Scouting is easy and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you.
