For the first time ever, SEAL training will be offered in all four regions, at a record setting ten locations! This makes SEAL more accessible than ever before. If you are not familiar with SEAL, it is similar to NAYLE, the BSA’s advanced outdoor leadership training. SEAL is a leadership course where the “laboratory” is a boat you are in command of and the environment changes as fast as the river, lake, bay, or ocean the course is taught on. That is what makes SEAL unique and challenging. Don’t take our word for it, check out what Nick, Madi, and Trininty had to say about their SEAL experience!

Download the application and take some time to browse the various courses available before submitting before the March 1st deadline.
