Ship 2 Adventure
Join To Learn
We are part of Sea Scouts, BSA. We bring character building, citizenship training, and personal fitness to our scouts.
We encourage each other to learn. As we learn, we advance through various Sea Scout awards: Apprentice, Ordinary, Able, and Quartermaster.
Making Your Future Self
Our goal is to improve our personal character while securing our future. Part of this deals with sacrificing for the community; We give back because service is one of our core principals as good citizens.
Another part deals with who we want to be and what skill we want to learn. Commonly, we are focused on achieving skills for a:
- safe, life-long hobby;
- maritime career; and/or
- research and sciences
