Welcome

Welcome to 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scout Group. Founded in 1931, 3rd Chalkwell Bay operates from our purpose built headquarters in the Old Town of Leigh on Sea in Essex, where we run a huge array activities and training for boys and girls ages 6 to 25 and beyond. We are recognised by the Royal Navy as one of the top 100 Sea Scout Groups in the country.

As a Sea Scout Group a lot of our activities are based on the water, and we have a large fleet of our own boats including RS Quests, Wanderers, Topazs & a Laser Stratos to name a few, plus a collection of safety and rowing boats to name a few. We are a Royal Yachting Association and British Rowing Recognised Training Centre, giving formal sailing, power boating and rowing training to national standards most weekends. We also offer a wide range of other activities and traditional Scouting skills including hiking, climbing, camping, and visits away.

The Group has five sections, Beavers for 6-8 year olds, Cubs for 8–10½ year olds, two Sea Scout Troops for boys & girls aged 10½ – 14, and the Endeavour Explorer Sea Scout Unit for 14-18 year olds; Southend West Scout Network for 18-25 year olds also meets at The Den. All sections are led by a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers and qualified instructors. The Leigh Creek Guzzlers is open to anyone who has ever been associated with the Group and wishes to keep in touch socially, and the parents support team assist with fundraising efforts that keep us so active.
