This is what we live for!! Join the crew for sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, overnight sailing and camping trips, canoeing, and whatever else the crew can imagine and organize. It's your Ship, what will you do? You will learn skills in these areas from Ship adults and experts from other lake shore organizations such as SEAS, Sheboygan Youth Sailing, Sail Sheboygan and the Yacht Club sailors, just to mention a few of our wonderful partners.
As a member of the National Sea Scouts, participate in District, Council, Area and National activities of the Sea Scouts of ScoutsBSA. In addition, our Ship can host regattas, canoe trips, races, etc., for youth in the area, or the world. It's up to us!
Fall and Winter ship meetings give us the chance to organize the next summer activities, work on Sea Scout Advancements for those interested, build boats under expert instruction, and maintain our fleet of Lasers, FJ's and our flagship, the Watkins. There are also opportunities to join and/or organize social activities with other ships and youth organizations.
Scouting is all about Service. The Ship organizes a marina cleanup in the beginning of the summer, provides can recycling for the yacht club sailors, and looks for ways to give back to our lake shore community.
Advancement and Career interests
Scouts interested in Sea Scout Rank Advancement will find that our activities and training qualify them for the 4 rank advancements in Sea scouting - Apprentice, Ordinary, Able, and Quartermaster. Earning these ranks opens up the world of National Sea Scout Regattas, Long Cruise opportunities, and special considerations for those looking into careers with the Navy, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine.
Earn your Small Boat Sailing merit badge under the direction of ScoutsBSA Merit Badge Counselors Mark Matthias (Ship 50 Skipper) and Whitney Kent (Sheboygan Youth Sailing). Look for our Small Boat Sailing merit badge clinics or contact Sea Scouts or Sheboygan Youth Sailing. Youth already registered with another unit of ScoutsBSA pay only $7 a year to be a Ship member!
Whether you just want to be on the water this summer, or see yourself sailing around the world someday, Sea Scouts is for you. Join today! All you need to bring is your energy, great attitude, and a parent or guardian to sign the papers.
