Sea Scouts: Co-ed 14-20 Years Old
Sea Scouts is a specialized program, organized to address a youth members’ boating skills and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage.
Sea Scout units, called “ships,” focus on sailing and cruising either sailboats, power vessels or paddle sports. During the boating season, Sea Scouts learn to maintain and operate vessels, with a focus on learning the safe and proper methods of handling boats. Sea Scouts also learn the meaning of buoys and lights, how to take advantage of wind and tide, and how to drop anchor or approach a dock.
North Florida Council relaunched Sea Scouts with the objective of expanding the program in the region and to use the facilities and vessels of our St Johns River Base at Echockotee and Waterfront and Aquatics Center at Camp Shands.
