Welcome to Third Walsall Sea Scouts. We have been established for over 100 years and have our purpose built headquarters at Killock, on Longwood lane, Aldrigde. At the facility we run a vast array of activities and training. During summer the Scouts and Explorers also use Powells Pool and Chase Sailing Club to do our water program. Third Walsall Sea Scouts are one of only 104 scout troops to be recognised by the Royal Navy.
What are sea scouts? We are very similar to regular scouts but we have a priority to water activities, so we sail, row, kayak, canoe and windsurf. Explorers are also taught how to powerboat. But we still do all the things traditional scouts do too, such as camping, hiking, climbing and archery.
The Group offers five age-based sections of Scouting: Beavers for 6-8 year olds, Cubs for 8–10½ year olds, Scouts aged 10½ – 14, and Explorers for 14-18 year olds; our Network for 18-25 year olds also meets at Killock. All sections are led by a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers and qualified instructors.
