Meet on Thursdays (19:00 – 21:00)

Our Sea Scout Troop aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. We offer them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.


Due to the success of our Group we have temporarily closed our waiting list. Please check back soon.



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

Summer Boating

Our scout section runs boating throughout the warmer months from our own private beach on Shore road. We use a number of different craft including more traditional boats such as Bosuns, Wayfarers & Coypu rowing boats. We also have a fleet of more modern craft such as Laser Pico's, Toppers, Pyranha Kayaks and Canoes

Scout Leader

Graham Bateson

Graham was a member of Hythe during his younger year's and progressed through the Group to now come back as a Scout Leader. Outside of Scouting he is a Land surveyor and makes the outdoors his office. Enjoys teaching our current members the skills of scouting even though he can't fit in a kayak but we love him anyway!

Skills for life

Our programme is designed to provide a wide range of different skills & activities. We offer both land & sea based training from knots, hiking and navigation, to swimming, kayaking, sailing and camping inland as well as on the waters edge.


This year has been a challenge for us all, for the first time ever our Leaders had to transform their programme online. We have undertaken camps from home, quizzes, problem solving, Master chef competition and more. On the 20th August we ran our first face to face meeting with reduced attendance and social distancing in our beautiful New forest. Face to face meetings now follow strict rules and risk management, linked here is our current risk assessment for the Scout Section.
