Sea Scout Ship 2 Adventure Uniforms

We use uniforms as method to ensure scouts understand their actions should set examples in our community.

We use the Official Sea Scout Uniform (SSU). Our ship allows scout families to start quick with an inexpensive purchase of our Standard SSU. We also support a high adventure SSU option.

Either Sea Scout Uniform (SSU) is welcomed within Ship 2!

The important things are the uniform color (Dark Navy) and the uniform placement of the official patches on the uniform. Beyond that, it is a uniforms are battle that we just don't care about.

All uniform shirts must include the correct/official badges, as discussed below.

The standard and high adventure uniforms are detailed below.

Our Standard SSU is available through SG Trading Post -- and serves as the basis for everything we do & need. This is the Dickies Dark Navy work clothes (cotton or ripstop blend) applied to the needs of the Sea Scouts. These are also available through Walmart without badges.

See below for details about required badges.

High Adventure Uniform

Our High Adventure SSU is selected to support the wearer on longer, all-season events where personal protection is more important. We sought clothing that acts as the first layer of survival gear.

For this purpose, we selected the 5.11 Tactical version of the Sea Scout official uniform. This alternative is sold through the 5.11 (Fairfax, VA), Cabelas (Gainesville, VA), and other retailers.

See below for details about required badges.
