We are the 1st Surbiton (Sealion) Sea Scout Group.
We are a Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Group and the largest Scout Group in Royal Kingston District.
We have three sections: Beavers (2 Colonies), Cubs (2 Packs) and an enormous Sea Scout Troop.
We are also lucky enough to be partnered with an Explorer Sea Scout Unit.
These sections are for different age groups that are designed to give maximum enjoyment - Beavers for 6-8 year olds, Cubs for 8-10, Scouts for 10-14 and Explorers up to 18 years.
Have a look around the site to find out about us and what we do. If you would like more information or want to join, you can find the form on the bar at the top. This site is expanding all the time - new articles and pictures on the Beavers, Cubs, Sea Scouts and Explorers. We also have pages on Camps and Activities. Check out the Calendar to see what is coming up in the next few weeks.
National Regatta 2013
Well done to the whole team - Scouts and Explorers. Lots of finals and lots of great effort from everyone during a beautiful sunny weekend on the River Thames overlooking Hampton Court.
A great effort from the U12.5 team, including third in the final of the Double Dinghy and a strong showing from U14 team including the final of the Kayak and Frankie winning Sculling over the Stern and so being National U14 Champion. The U16 Explorers won its overall competition and the Sculling over the Stern trophy and the U18 Explorers performed strongly in all their events particularly winning the U18 Kayak trophy.
Check out the Sealion Facebook page for photos of the weekend.

Sealion is RN Group No.72
Our inspection by the Royal Navy went off with flying colours in 2011. The Troop and Unit were excellent in their activities and discipline and were a credit to themselves, their families and Sealion Scouts. The Beavers and Cubs played their part too and Lt Cmdr Griffiths was delighted to award us with our new Red Ensign and RN Pennant. He announced that we are now officially known as RN Recognised Sea Scouts Group No.72.
Find out the latest about the biggest Scout Group in Kingston here on this site. Discover the international adventures of the Troop and Unit among 12,000 Scouts at the huge Dutch Jubjam 2010 - celebrating 100 years of Scouting in the Netherlands in Devon 2011 and in Holland 2012. Learn about what exciting activities are on this term and beyond for Beavers, Cubs, Sea Scouts and Explorers.
The Troop uses email and this website as the main form of communication. Hopefully parents will no longer need to find out about activities and events by finding soggy letters that have just been through a nice spin cycle!
If you are a parent/guardian of a scout in the Troop please send an email with your name and your Scout's name to email@example.com
