Maritime Exploring is a special program for girls and boys in grades 6-8 to experience water-based Scouting adventures alongside NCAC’s Sea Scout Ships! When the US Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGAUX) partnered with Sea Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts became the official youth program for the USCGAUX. This partnership has opened even more doors for our Sea Scouts.
Sea Scouts is a BSA program that wraps all the necessary life-long skills learned in other Scouting programs within the trappings of fun, water-based activities. Sea Scouts can go sailing or SCUBA diving and end up challenging themselves to grow and lead. Like other BSA programs, Sea Scouts are recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments and discoveries. They learn valuable lessons in boating safety and have the opportunity to earn other certifications such as lifesaving, SCUBA, and CPR/First Aid all while throwing their sheets into the wind and sailing.
NCAC has 14 Sea Scout Ships across the waters throughout DC, Maryland, and Virginia and every Ship would welcome a Maritime Explorer Club to partner with!
