Sea Scouting

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone, it is very interesting to me.  I know me son loves it and otherwise would probably be out of scouting but is now a Life rank and planning on his Eagle.

Some sea scouts walk on water...:D

"The Sea Scouts ( Ship 5001 Akron,OH) were out on Portage Lakes during the cold weather, not as they are usually seen in sailboats, kayaks, canoes or paddle boards, rather on cross country skies."

...

One of the programs the scouts have is “leave no trace”. That is what the Sea Scouts did on the weekend was ski on the lakes and collect trash, leaving no trace behind except for ski tracks.

That is cool, and super cold.  Our kids went to Philmont in the first week of the year.  It was -8, and super cold.  OMG I was so cold.  The kids like that they were on water in a different "state", lol.  They were even pictured on the Philmont facebook page.

That is awesome to hear.  I hope some of your pack joins a Ship.  Or even founds one.

So, 8 months after this trip and today my son tells me that he would like to be a sea scout when he is old enough... and continue to be a boy scout. 😲
