Sea Base Summer 2024

 
 
In the summer of 2024, we are heading to BSA's Sea Base in the Florida Keys for a week of high adventure sailing on the open seas. 
This trip will be for all Scouts who are at First Class rank or above and at least 14 years old.

During this sailing trip, Scouts will have the opportunity to sail the waters offshore the Florida Keys and snorkel the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, one of the world's largest coral reefs. 
Scouts will also study astronomy, nautical navigation and fish and coral reef ecology.  Scouts will learn hands-on all facets of boat handling and safety.


We do not yet have dates set for this trip.  Registration for the summer of 2024 trips will be open on January 18, 2023 at 9AM. 
Sea Base has a first come, first served reservation system.
