Maritime Gloucester is proud to announce that it is starting a new Sea Scout “Ship” effective immediately. It has been many years since Cape Ann operated an active Sea Scout group for youth.
The Sea Scouts recently celebrated its 100th year anniversary when Governor Deval Patrick declared October 8th, 2012 as the official Sea Scouts Day in Massachusetts. First inspired on the waters of the Massachusetts coast, the program is a national coed outdoor program for young adults ages 14 to 20 that promotes knowledge of our nation’s maritime heritage and provides young people with positive opportunities through hands-on maritime education, training and experiences. The Gloucester “Ship” would serve the North Shore and be a part of the Yankee Clipper Council, BSA, Inc.
