Bucklands Beach Sea Scouts is one of New Zealand's largest and most successful Sea Scout Groups.

We learn Scouting and Boating skills in our 4 Cutters, 4 Sunbursts and 10 Kayaks, and our heavy and lightweight camping equipment.

We have a strong committee and dedicated, trained Leadership in each section. With our Parent help and support we are able to engage in a full programme of camping and boating competitions. Check out the programme for each section by clicking on the links to the left.

We are one of only 15 Sea Scout Groups in NZ to hold Naval Recognition. This acknowledges a high standard of leadership through the committee, all sections, and a high level of participation by our Scouts.

You can find us at 32 Morrow Ave, Bucklands Beach

2016 Subs are now due:

We have held our fees for this year. You can either pay term by term or all at once.
If you pay all at once, you don't need to pay an increase if your Scout moves up a section.
Keas $200 or $55 per term
Cubs $240 or $65 per term
Scouts $340 or $90 per term
Venturers $300 or $110 per term, note only 3 Terms

Please make your payments to 12 3089 0108643 00, use your Scouts Name and Section in the references so we can allocate the fees correctly.
You are getting a whole year of programme for about the same as playing a winter sport, so we think you get pretty good value.
