Sea Scout Ship 280
Sea Scouting is a program for young men and women aged 13 through 20. For over 100 years Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship and improved members' boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences and knowledge of our maritime heritage.
Sea Scout units called ships- are established all across the country on oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes. They provide limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won't nd anywhere else. Sea Scouts is a place to grow, learn, adventure and build long lasting friendships.
About Sea Scout Ship 280
Sea Scout Ship 280 is sponsored by the Alum Creek Sailing Association and focuses on sailing and powerboating. We have access to multiple boats so you can learn how to sail. During the boating seasons, every member has a chance to try their hand at the tiller, to trim the sails, and all members are taught 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. Day, weekend, and long cruises are held for all ship members.
