Maritime Museum looks to resurrect Sea Scouts ship

For the first time in decades, you will find a Sea Scouts Ship in Sturgeon Bay. Sea Scouts is a segment of the Boy Scouts of America that takes boys and girls out of the woods and puts them on oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes. The program is divided into units called ships, where members work on improving their boating skills and citizenship. Before establishing a Sea Scouts Ship in Sturgeon Bay, the closest one that could be found was in the Fond du Lac area. Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Kevin Osgood was a Sea Scout growing up and has spent the last few months talking to local Sea Scouts of yesteryear when Sturgeon Bay had an active ship in the 50s and 60s. He says the pieces are in place to offer an excellent experience for young men and women.

The Door County Maritime Museum will host a Join Night for its Sea Scouts ship on February 9th from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Representatives from America’s Boating Club, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Bay Lakes Area Council will also be on hand to answer questions and to help guide new members along the first few months of being a Sea Scouts ship.
