Patriots’ Path Council Sea Scout Bulletin

Now is a great time to get involved with Sea Scouts.  Our programs run year-round and we’re currently preparing our 2020 calendar of events in and around the water.  In addition to weekend trips and the summer long cruise, there will be activities focused on water safety, small boat sailing, navigation and maritime career opportunities.

Ship 228, Ship 243 and Maritime Club 2430 are open to young men and women grade six through age 21.  We are also looking for male and female adult leaders to deliver our programs and to help with ship operations and maintenance.  Boating experience is not required.

Most of our active Sea Scouts are also fully involved with a local troop.  They are acquiring complementary skills and experiences and having lots of fun.  And, the numbers show that youth who are involved in a traditional program and Sea Scouts stay with Scouting longer.  In addition, dual-registered Scouts only pay a single council registration fee – they are receiving two great programs for the price of one.

Our Sea Scout ships are available to partner with other units to provide unique day or overnight activities or for water- based merit badge requirements.

For additional information about joining our program or partnership opportunities, reach out to Council Commodore Jonathan Joshua at seascouts@jjoshua.com.

There is a new ship forming in Black River District Coast Guard Auxiliary in Hopatcong. Contact Al.Thomas@Scouting.org to join or for more information.
