Welcome to our Scout Troop!
We would like to welcome you and your child to the 3rd South Shields Sea Scout Troop. We are part of South Tyneside District Scouts and Durham Scout County.
Subs are £45 per term and are paid on line via Online Scout Manager. Find out more about OSM Here
We are using Online Scout Manager (OSM) to help us with the administration of our cub pack. When your child joins the 3rd South Shields Sea Scout Group you will receive an email with a link to OSM parent login. Follow the instructions and you will be able to check and update your child's personal details and emergency contact information. You will be able to see notices, program details and information. The system even lets you book and pay online for subscriptions, and events such as camp, competitions and visits.
Easier for you and easier for us!
Once your child has been in the pack for a few weeks we expect them to wear a uniform. They will complete a membership badge and be invested in to the scout movement with simple a ceremony to which parents will be invited.
We meet on Friday’s from 19:30 – 21:30 during the autumn and spring terms when a lot of our activities will be outside in the areas around the Sailing Club. The nights are dark and cold so please check the list of general equipment below. We are a Sea Scout Unit and every Friday during the summer term we meet from 18:00 – 21:00 to sail. Please check the lists of wet and sailing equipment below.

Please note: at the 3rd we do not issue all these badges (joining in for example) to keeps costs down and target resources on FUN. But you WILL find all the badges we do issue on this diagram including the all important Royal Navy (RN) Recognition badge. Happy sewing!
