The National Sea Scout Committee is looking for talented Sea Scouts to represent the program at the Area, Regional, and National level. Each Area, Regional or National Boatswain will represent Sea Scouts, BSA at Boy Scouts of America Meetings, other meetings, Sea Scout Activities, and Council activities. They will sit on the their respective Sea Scout Service Committee and work on special projects or task forces. They are expected to support the programs and activities designed by the Boy Scouts of America; support the Boy Scouts of America in training of Sea Scout youth and adult leaders; and promote national, regional, and area(flotilla) activities, programs, and awards. Most importantly, they will serve as the liaison from the appropriate Sea Scout Committee to lower tier boatswains and other youth leadership of Sea Scouts.
The Sea Scout Experience Advanced Leadership (SEAL) training program is a course designed to teach leadership skills while at sea. SEAL is not a seamanship course. It is designed to “jump start” junior leaders of new Ships and to tune up leaders from more experienced ships. SEAL is a hard core, tough, demanding and remarkably rewarding hands- on leadership experience. New and experienced Sea Scouts will succeed at SEAL so long as they are willing to learn and work hard at preparation. Download and complete the application that was was updated on January 17, 2018.
