Celebrating 60 years
On the 11th of November 2019 contractors started the work to build our new HQ, we will be keeping an album with photos from the build as best we can.

Who Are We?
2nd Warwick Sea Scout Group is a large Scout group based in St Nicholas Park, Warwick, established in 1959. We offer Scouting to children aged from 6 to 18 years old. Our Group is split into four sections: Beavers 6-8 years, Cubs 8-10.5 years, Scouts 10.5-14 years and Explorers 14-18 years.
What do we get up to?
Being a Sea Scout Group we undertake all of the activities you would expect from land-based Scouts, from lighting fires and camping, to hiking and survival skills, but with the addition of sailing, rowing, kayaking, canoeing, powerboating, and much more. The Scout troops and the Explorer unit do the most boating but the other sections get taster sessions during the summer term.
We try to offer activities that challenge our members and help them grow into independent young adults with resilience, teamwork and leadership qualities they can look back on with pride.
We are an RN recognised group, Number 14, which means we are inspected every 18 months to ensure we meet the requirements set down by the Royal Navy. It has many benefits - find out more.
‘2nd Warwick Sea Scouts have maintained their status amongst the best of Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Groups in the country and for Scouting programme and achievements alone are probably the best’

NO ONE LOOKS BACK ON THEIR LIFE AND REMEMBERS THE NIGHTS THEY HAD PLENTY OF SLEEP
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
