Sea Scouting sign-up March 7 and 11 at Heritage Lake

Discover the adventure of SEA SCOUTING - in, on, around and under water.

In late 2016, the Heritage Lake Board of Directors approved a community request to sponsor a Sea Scout Ship (unit) for the older youth of Heritage Lake and the general Putnam County area.

For over 100 years, Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship and improved member’s boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage.

The Sea Scout unit is called a Ship we will be the first Ship in west central Indiana and only the third in Central Indiana. Other Ships are established all around the country on oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes. They provide limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

Sea Scouts, is an older youth program of the Boys Scouts of America, it is a youth - led organization. The youth will develop their own program, elect their own leaders and carry out their plans. Adults serve as advisors, counselors and consultants to the ship. Imagine sailing the Caribbean, cruising to Alaska, fishing, swimming, diving, scuba, and high adventure activities or anything else your Ship wants to do! You’ll even have the opportunity to meet Sea Scouts from other parts of your community, the nation and even the world!

Sea Scouts is open to all youth - boys and girls - age 14 through 21 (or 13 and have completed 8th grade). Two recruiting events with sign - up opportunity will be held at Heritage Lake Club House address 1000 Clubhouse Coatesville, In 46121 on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM and Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 2:00 PM until 4:30 PM. All activities related to starting the Ship will be completed in March and regular meetings will begin shortly thereafter.
