Inspiring young people

Well crafted outdoor activities are important tools in developing a young person's health, attitude and wellbeing. There are a number of proven benefits to getting young people outdoors.
• Encourages a greater respect for nature and the environment.
• Improves personal health and fitness.
• Reduces levels of stress and anxiety.
• Develops a range of skills including cooperation, communication and self-motivation.
• Helps young people understand assessing risks and how to stay safe on and around the sea.


1st/7th Whitley Bay Sea Scouts
25 of our Scouts had a great time last night with Curtis and Nick on SUP's at Cullercoats and Josh and Michael out Coasteering on Browns Bay. Safety was paramount but fun not inhibited in any way under the careful watch of CBK's Team. This is our second visit now and we're sure to be back again.
