Everett Sea Scouts

Sea Scouts is a co-ed division of the Boy Scouts of America, and shares the same principles and goals. They are one of the only youth sailing programs in Snohomish County. The mission is to prepare male and female youth ages 14 - 21 to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath, Scout Law, and the Sea Promise.  As part of the nation's foremost youth program, Sea Scouts experience character development and acquire life skills and leadership skills through a program of responsible fun and adventure supported by Milltown Sailing Association.  The program includes on-water sailing, cruises, boat maintenance and repair, water survival skills, navigation, small boat handling, water safety, nautical customs, and many other nautical skills.  This high adventure youth program provides excitement, adventure, leadership, nautical skills, and character building in a social environment where the participants can meet new friends and socialize with other groups.  We attempt to expose youth to as many aspects of adulthood as possible, give them the opportunities to try new things, overcome previous fears, and practice being adults in their own peer group.  

The Everett Sea Scouts have been a charter organization of The Milltown Sailing Association for over ten years. MSA members have donated many hours to this youth sailing organization. The Scouts participate in the Log Dodge races, NWISA high school dinghy sailing regattas, and have competed twice in international regattas.

To donate, bring items to a club meeting or drop them off at a Sea Scouts meeting on Tuesdays from 6pm - 7:30 at the clubhouse.
