Children are never too young to start their big Scouting adventure…

At 2nd St. Ives Sea Scout Group we are fortunate enough to be close to capacity across all sections due, in no small part to the efforts and continued hard work of our section Leaders and their teams, a fully supportive Group Executive and most importantly our active parents helpers and Section Assistants.

Our Thriving and active Scout Group has a dedicated leadership team who produce exciting and dynamic programmes for young people aged 6 to 18, teaching life skills whilst having plenty of fun along the way.

It is truly exciting being involved with us. We believe that through adventure, young people can regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives, meet lifelong friends and make memories to last a lifetime throughout their Scouting journey with 2nd St Ives Sea Scout Group.


This continued hard work ensures 2nd St Ives is a successful group, the downside to this is that we are often oversubscribed across all sections and as such, without sufficient adult support, we may need to place some young members on our reserve waiting lists.


To ensure your child gets a place at 2nd St Ives from a young age, we actively encourage parents to offer their support to our group through our Adult Volunteer Programme as well as join the early years waiting list for their child.  This enables our leaders to see the projected intake each term into each section, as well as predicted assistance from adults to ensure that every child in our area has the opportunity to join the Scouting Movement.

Children with adults who can contribute even a small amount of time to our Group will be considered first when selecting from our reserve waiting list

If your child is 5 or under and you want them to be part of 2nd St Ives Sea Scout Group, we only invest 10 new children a year, so it is never too early to get their name down for 2nd St. Ives Beavers.

Scouting develops a child’s mental health, fosters resilience, builds confidence and improves physical ability. Proud parents watch as we turn shy little people into confident young adults

…new experiences are vital for building Brain Architecture, particular Executive Functions, Working Memory, Mental Flexibility and Self Control All help to develop better Skills For Life.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
