Sea Scout Photo Booths

Sea Scout Ships attending activities such as a Scout-O-Rama or on-campus recruiting activity at high schools often have to decide, “What can we introduce interested youth to Sea Scouts?”

Photo booths for “selfies” are a fun and inexpensive way to creatively engage prospective Sea Scouts. Here are DIY tips on how to make your own Selfie Booth.

5 Ideas for Recruiting Sea Scouts

Collaborative Sea Scout Recruiting

Get on the Water

We are making 2019 the year of Getting on the Water.

Small boats are a wonderful way to get Sea Scouts on the water every week. This provides an opportunity for hands-on activity, fun and character building through adventure.

The benefits of small boats are huge. Sea Scouts who are taking out a boat frequently are constantly becoming better sailors. Weekly small boat activities can also help keep Scouts excited about being a Sea Scout. This positive energy in a Sea Scout Ship can help with retaining existing Sea Scouts and recruiting new ones.

Sea Scout volunteers should help their Sea Scouts keep the Sea Promise by reviewing Safety Afloat with the youth, having a Float Plan filed online prior to any weekend aquatic activity.
