About Us

History 

6th Rickmansworth Sea Scout Group (formerly 57th South West Hertfordshire) is one of seven Scout groups in the District of Rickmansworth and Chorleywood in Hertfordshire. Our Group Headquarters are located in the grounds of our sponsoring authority Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church, Rickmansworth, as the Group was formed to provide Catholic Scouting in Rickmansworth and surrounding parishes. 

Many of our members are parishioners from Our Lady Help of Christians, Rickmansworth; St. Bede's, Croxley GreenSt. John's, Mill End and St. John Fisher, Chorleywood. Whilst being Catholic is not a prerequisite for joining the group, all members are expected to attend our Church Parades which are usually held on the first Sunday of the month during term time.

The Group

The Group is currently divided up into three sections - 


Beavers 
Beavers 6 to 8 year olds


Cubs

During term time, each section meets once a week as well as participating in weekend activities and camps or sleepovers.

Scouting for over 14's is managed at District Level and is supported by Leaders at 6th Rickmansworth. Their are two further sections, Explorer Scouts 14 to 18 year olds and Scout Network 18 to 25 year olds.

Sea Scouting

As a Sea Scout Group, we pride ourselves on the extensive use of water activities such as Kayaking, Canoeing, Sailing and Rowing as part of the programme we offer. As well as water activities, we go hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering as well as partaking in many other activities such as air rifle shooting and traditional scouting activities. As well as a variety of sports, younger members of the group especially, will find themselves playing games, cooking, doing arts and crafts and more! We also enjoy doing weekend activities and going away during the holidays.

We aim to deliver an exciting, fun and educational programme that will enrich the lives of all the young people in the group and enable them to reach their potential in a safe and secure environment.

Who runs the Group?

6th Rickmansworth Sea Scout Group is run by a dedicated team of hard working, volunteer Leaders. Headed by our Group Scout Leader, all of our Leaders give up their own time providing the skills and experience required to provide the varied programme of activities we offer.

We are backed up by an Executive Committee made up of volunteers, including Section Leaders, Parent and past-Parent representatives. They give up their own time to organise fundraising and social events throughout the year providing the necessary resources to maintain group buildings and equipment so that the Leaders can carry out the wide range activities provided within the Group.

Whilst the Executive Committee organise the Fundraising and Social events, none of them could happen without the support we receive from our Young people, their Parents, our Leaders and Supporters of 6th Rickmansworth, for which we are extremely grateful. 

We are always looking for more support in the form of adult helpers, and if you are willing and able to spare a couple of hours per week in order to help out then we would love to hear from you. Just send us a message via the contact us page and we will get back to you.
