Monday Night Meetings
Our normal scout night is a Monday and we have a mixture of games, scout training, badge work and sport. We also have some theme evenings and during the summer we often have trips out or do outdoor activities.

There is a range of scout badges for the scouts to try for and we give as much assistance / training / opportunities as possible for them to achieve as many as they can.

Outdoor Activities
The troop try to have at least three weekends away and a one-week summer camp each year. In addition we have a number of single day activities.

As a Sea Scout troop we try to do as much boating as we can. We have our own canoes, Mirror and Enterprise sailing dinghies,Toppers, a rowing boat and a sport boat with an outboard engine. We also have links with other organisations to give the older scouts the opportunity of doing offshore sailing on larger yachts. At camps we train the scouts in basic camping skills (fire lighting/tent pitching/cooking etc.) and also hiking, map reading, pioneering etc.

Summer Camps
In 2002 and 2003 we visited a site in North Walsham, Norfolk, Which has it’s own lake. We also had a very good summer camp in 2000 when we took the group to Holland. We met up with two groups out there and the scouts came back with lots of knowledge about the Dutch culture. We are going back to Holland again in 2005. Last year 2004 we went to Hayling Island near Portsmouth, please ask for more details.

Weekend Camps
We have a piece of land at Waltham Abbey next to the river Lea that we lease from the Environment Agency. We use this for weekend camps and whilst we normally use tents, there is a hut there as well, which can provide indoor accommodation. We also attend various District / County camps (normally one in May) at one of the official scout sites near London.
