Dartford Cambria Sea Scouts

Welcome to the Dartford Cambria Sea Scout Group. There are lots of Dartford Scout groups but we are the only Sea Scouts, we are also one of just 103 Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Groups in the country.

In loving memory of Roger Rowe (Bosun) - 1940 to 2020

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Roger Rowe (Bosun) passed away on 18th July 2020 aged 79. Bosun was our Group President, he joined the group aged 7 and went on to become Scout Leader and Group Scout Leader. He loved living life to the full and was the lifeblood of the Cambria family. This one man has influenced so many people through the lifetime commitment he made to others.

The funeral was held on 13th August however due to COVID-19 restrictions numbers were limited.

A full celebration of his life will be held on Saturday 21st May 2022. All are welcome to attend this event but please let Roger Harris or Steve Newton know if you are coming. The event will start at 4.30pm with a formal parade from Ingress Abbey to the Greenhithe Jetty and a brief speech. This will be followed by a ceremonial scattering of ashes out on the Cambria Island which all will be able to watch from shore. The young people currently in the group will be dismissed at approximately 6pm and for those who wish there will be an evening reception in the Pier Hotel.

RYA PB2 Training Courses

We run one or two trianing courses each year as a fundraiser so anyone intersted in gaining the RYA PB2 qualification, learning to drive our powerboats and having a great fun weekend on the water please contact us for dates and prices. We need 6-12 people for the courses to go ahead so if you have a group then let us know and we can run a course specifically for you.
