The 8th Faversham Sea Scout Group provides Scouting for young people from 8 years old and was formed in 1966.
The 8th Faversham Sea Scout Group is proud to be one of the 100 groups in the country to be Royal Navy recognised. RN number 21.
Sea Scouting has the same purpose and goals as any other Scout Group however, the main difference lays in the method of delivery. This is because in Sea Scouting, water and nautical activities are used as the basis of delivering the Balanced Programme. Although most Scouts have the opportunity for boating activities, such as sailing and canoeing, the Sea Scout programme puts considerable emphasis on water activities and also incorporates many aspects of naval and nautical traditions.
The Group covers the following age ranges catered for by the Scout Movement:
Cubs - age 8 to 11 years
Scouts - age 11 to 14 years
