Sea Scouts

Travel the Greatest Wilderness on Earth

Do you dream of sailing the Caribbean?  Exploring the Canadian waters in a kayak?  Swimming a coral reef? Traveling the canals of Venice? Spending the weekend racing FJ sailboats, always on the edge of a spectacular ending?  Do you imagine a scout unit with their own jet boat?  Then you’re ready to be a Sea Scout!

And the surprising part is – it’s remarkably affordable!  So explore the website and contact us when you’re ready to add a pair of boat shoes to go next to those hiking boots.  (But keep the boots…  You’ll need them on Dead Chest Island!)

The mission of the National Capital Area Council Sea Scouts (NCACSS) is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law through maritime skills and adventures.  The NCACSS Quarterdeck is a youth-led organization assigned to help strengthen member ships through enhanced program and resources.
