11th Torbay (Barton)
We are the 11th Torbay (Barton) Sea Scout Group.
Our Scout Headquarters is located at Lummaton Cross, Happaway Road, Torquay.
We are a Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Group (see below for more information) and have 4 sections in our group which structure programs based around a Land Season and a Water Season. This enables all young people the ability to earn the Chief Scout award badge and take part in a range of water activities (including sailing, kayaking and pulling). We are also a RYA Training Centre which allows us to award RYA Certificates for eligible attainment. The water season takes place at Torquay Harbour at our base next to Living Coasts.
