Saturday, March 1, 2014: SEA SCOUT Volunteer Information Meeting, 2:00 p.m.
The Western Region Sea Scouts (WRSS) are challenging everyone to make 2014 the year to get out on the water! In support of this challenge, Tahoe Maritime Museum (TMM) is sponsoring a new co-ed Sea Scout Ship for the Lake Tahoe area. WRSS and TMM are seeking at least five volunteers over 21 to act as the Sea Scout Ship leaders and work with high school students in small boat handling, sailing, wooden boat care, and cruising. Please join us on March 1 to learn more.

Sea Scouts, B.S.A., is the second oldest program in the Boy Scouts of America, and is for boys and girls, ages 13 (and a graduate of the 8th grade) to 21. Sea Scouts have hands-on adventure on the water, learn character development through education, and make lifelong friends.

The new Tahoe Ship will focus on kayaking, stand-up paddleboards, and small boat sailing. Scouts will learn leadership skills, navigation, marlinspike, plus many other maritime skills.

The informational meeting for interested volunteers will be hosted at Tahoe Maritime Museum. Western Region Sea Scout Commodore Joshua Gilliland, an attorney from San Jose, CA, will give an overview of Sea Scouts, B.S.A.; the available program opportunities for youth; and how local adult volunteers can make the Tahoe Ship a reality.

Please register at or call us at (530) 525-9253.
