Sea Scout Partnership

Sea Scouts is a program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and is organized into units – called “Ships” – comprised of male and female youth ages 14-21 led by adult leaders. Sea Scouting promotes 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.
The goal of this MOU between ACA and Sea Scouts, BSA is to create a mutually beneficial program that would encourage Sea Scout Ships to incorporate paddling into their programs and for ACA leaders to share their occupational expertise and guidance to America’s youth.
The ACA and Sea Scouts will work cooperatively with each other, within the policies, procedures, safety guidelines and regulations of each organization, to establish and nurture Sea Scout Ships so that young adults may grow in character, physical and mental health, citizenship responsibility and with personal growth necessary to achieve their greatest potential.
