Sea Scouts is a specialized program of the Boy Scouts of America, that focuses on water high adventure and personal development. Sea Scout units, called ships, focus on sailing and cruising either sailboats, power vessels or paddle sports. Youth in these ships sail, row, canoe, keep boats in shape, cruise the local waters of Galveston Bay or sail on long cruises far from home. Some SCUBA dive, but all are active in camping, social events, regattas and annual seamanship contests or rendezvous.
Each ship has a unique program designed and implemented by its youth members. Some ships only sail small boats such as Lasers and Sunfish, others sail catamarans or cruise in sailing sloops ranging from 22 to 33 feet, and some sail competitively. Some ships focus on aquatics, but most of our ships do it all. Basically, if it is an activity about, on, in, under or through the water, Sea Scouts in the Sam Houston Area Council are involved. You can experience the thrills of a lifetime, and let the world know you are ready to join the fun!
