Trained Leader Discount
As discussed on the Trained Leader Discount page, discounted fees are being offered to three Scouting activities this year, including Venturing Super Weekend! To confirm whether your adult leaders have surpassed the 80% trained standard, please contact Earl Richardson, Council Training Chair, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Earl will review your unit’s training records on the MyScouting website and verify whether the BSA’s records confirm the measure has been met. Earl will then provide an alternate registration page for qualified units.
Sea Scouts is a specialized segment of the Venturing program, which was organized to address members’ boating skills and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage.
Sea Scout units, called “ships,” focus on sailing and cruising either sailboats or power vessels. During the boating seasons, Sea Scouts learn to maintain and operate then vessel, with a focus on learning the safe and proper methods of handling boats. Sea Scouts also learn the meaning of buoys and lights, how to take advantage of wind and tide, and how to drop anchor or approach a dock.
