This course is designed for youth, to be presented by youth. The course would also be beneficial for adult leaders as well.

Sea Badge

Recognizing the uniqueness of the on-the-water leadership required in the Sea Scout program, the Seabadge training conference was conceived to:

  • To improve the understanding of leadership, management, and motivation among selected experienced Sea Scout adult volunteer leaders.
  • To provide management, leadership, and presentation skills and tools to these leaders so that they may use them and share them with others in their day-to-day activities and through leading a Seabadge conference.
  • To use this understanding and these skills and tools to improve and expand both the quality and quantity of the Sea Scout program as a way to reach the Aims of Scouting.
