Sea Scouts, BSA
Sea Scouts, BSA is a program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women ages 14 to 21.
The Purpose of Sea Scouts
For over 100 years Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship and improved members’ boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage.
The Sea Scout Program
Sea Scout units– called ships- are established all across the country on oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes. They provide limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t ﬁnd anywhere else. Sea Scouts is a place to grow and learn, ﬁnd adventure, and build long lasting friendships.
Sea Scout Pillars
The best part of Sea Scouts is cruising and mastering the skills you learn with your shipmates. On board a vessel you share hands-on experiences as helmsman and navigator, lookout and cook, sail handler and engineer. You and your shipmates will plan and conduct your annual cruise – summer camp underway. Imagine sailing the Caribbean, cruising to Alaska, ﬁshing, swimming, diving, snorkeling or anything else your ship wants to do!
