||Cub Scouting is a program for boys ages 6-10 who are in 1st-5th grade. Cub Scouts learn character and values in a fun environment. They typically meet once a week, or once every other week and enjoy one outing every month or two, depending on their specific group. A group of Cub Scouts meeting at a particular location to do Cub Scouting, is called a "Pack". Boys are further broken down by age groups into "dens". Boys do most of their activities and meetings with their den. |
Cub Scouts have the opportunity to attend summer camp and summer day camp and take part in a number of great activities, usually including, among others, the pinewood derby (pictures left).

||Sea Scouting is a coed, ship-based program for youth 14-20 years of age, or 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade. Sea Scouts have positive and character-building experiences while learning the time tested skills of a sailor. Each Sea Scout group is called a "Ship" and each Ship works with a specific vessel on an ongoing basis. The Scouts learn how to maintain and operate their vessel and have the opportunity to go on many adventures. Meeting schedule is dependent on the specific Ship as are the skills that the Scouts will learn. Some Sea Scouts are a part of a sailing Ship and learn fundamentals of sailing. Some Sea Scouts are a part of a motorized Ship, and learn the mechanics of that ship's systems. Each program is uniquely suited to the vessel and her Scouts. |
