Ship 228 to Hold First Virtual Open House

Are you interested in boating, sailing or mechanics? Come check out Sea Scouting and let the adventure at sea begin!

The crew of Ship 228 will be hosting a virtual open house, taking place over Zoom, on Saturday, March 13 at 4 p.m., and featuring various activities that are bound to pique a young adult’s interest in Scouting.

Ship 228 is proud to host the virtual open house for the very first time. The virtual open house will include a tour of the ship’s main vessel (the 65-foot Sea Dart II, one of the largest Sea Scout vessels on the East Coast), an introduction to the Sea Scout program, appearances from current Sea Scouts, a lively Q&A, and more.

More information regarding the virtual open house will be announced in the coming weeks. To register in advance, please provide your name, email address, and phone number (which is optional) in an email to [email protected]

Sea Scouts from Ship 228 operate the Sea Dart II along with a fleet of smaller vessels (including sailboats) from their picturesque base located in Linden.

Sea Scouting (which is part of the Venturing Program of the BSA) offers young adults the opportunity to travel and learn skills that could be useful in future careers. Whether you’re steering the vessel from the wheelhouse, learning engine room repair, or a visiting a new port on one of the many trips, there’s something you’ll enjoy in Sea Scouting. So, try something different, check us out, and prepare yourself to set sail for a real adventure.
