Who We Are

Founded in 1952, the 1st Standlake & Cokethorpe Sea Scout group is based in Standlake, West Oxon near the River Thames. We have three sections, taking boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 14. The group is one of only 103 Sea Scout groups recognised by the Royal Navy and runs water activities throughout the summer. We have a variety of water activities to offer including kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and raft building! We run the activities at our local sailing club, West Oxford Sailing Centre

We are connected with a local secondary school Cokethorpe, near Witney, Oxfordshire. The school is used as the Beaver and Scout (winter season only) HQ, and offers support towards the enhancement of the group.

Our group runs annual fundraising events in and around Standlake, which helps fund new equipment and camps. Have a look at our fundraising page to see what else we do.

In the group we have a new Beaver Colony, a well established Cub Pack and Sea Scout Troop, and a linked/partnered Sea Explorer Unit. For more information and how to contact us please navigate to the necessary section pages.
