The Best of Scouting
It is no secret that for ages, humans have been attracted by the sea. The biggest surprise is that there is a safe and fun program for the family to explore activities like sailing, cruising, motorboating, and swimming available with Sea Scouts.
What is Sea Scouting?
Sea Scouting is a part of the Boy Scouts of America for boys and girls between 13 and 20 years old. The mission of Sea Scouts is to prepare young people to make ethical decisions throughout their lifetimes in accordance with the Scout Oath and Law. Sea Scouting delivers this message through a safe and fun maritime program which is rich with the traditions of the sea.
What do Sea Scouts do? The emphasis of Sea Scout Ship 1610 is the art of sailing. Expect hands-on instruction in piloting, coastal navigation, cruising, racing, meteorology, hydrology, and radio communications. A time tested advancement program can prepare you for a career in the Navy, Coast Guard, or Merchant Marine. In fact, exemplary achievement in Sea Scouts can equate into a boost in rank when joining the service.
