Leadership from the U.S. Coast Guard, Auxiliary and Sea Scouts, will be at Hope Springs Marina this Saturday, June 15th at 10:30AM, to celebrate the Chartering of Sea Scout Ship 2511. This is a public event and members from all organizations will be on hand if you’re interested to learn more.
In August 2018, an agreement between United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Boy Scouts of America made Sea Scouts the official youth program of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. Since 1939 the Auxiliary has supported the Coast Guard in nearly all of the service’s missions. This partnership will give Sea Scouts an opportunity to benefit from Coast Guard seamanship and vocational training, while introducing Sea Scouts to the Coast Guard.
