Who we are

1st Findon Valley Sea Scouts is based in Worthing, West Sussex. Part of the Worthing Scouts we have a Beaver Colony, a Cub Pack and a Sea Scout Troop.

Nationally there are nearly 550,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards.

Beavers (6–8) 

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing and visits along with plenty of outdoor activities. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

Our Beaver Colony meets on Wednesdays between 17:30 and 18:30.

Cubs (8-10½)

A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.

Our Cub Pack meets on Wednesdays between 18:45 and 20:15.

Scouts (10½–14)

Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing,  photography, rafting, sailing and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.

Our Sea Scout Troop meets on Thursdays between 19:15 and 21:15
