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 .

Upcoming dates


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.
