There is a par­ent meet­ing com­ing up for folks inter­est­ed in scout­ing. Eric Stone says to con­tact him (at the address below) for more infor­ma­tion on the meet­ing to be held on March 20th at 6:30 pm

Boy Scouts of Amer­i­ca, has made sev­er­al rad­i­cal changes. Scout­ing (BSA) as it is now called, has changed from a pro­gram only for boys to one for that includes both boys and girls. In San Juan Coun­ty, there are cur­rent­ly two active pro­grams, Troop 4090 (ages 10–18) and Sea Scout Ship 4013 (14–21).  A new Cub Scout Pack is cur­rent­ly being planned (ages 7–11). 

For those unfa­mil­iar with the Scout­ing pro­gram, it pro­vides train­ing and char­ac­ter build­ing in: Lead­er­ship, Out­doors, First Aid, Camp­ing, Home Repairs, Hik­ing and much much more. 

Sea Scout­ing includes all of these but also helps your son/daughter towards a career in the mar­itime industries.

If you are inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about any of these pro­grams, please con­tact the Scout­ing Unit Com­mis­sion­er, Eric Stone at: SJSeaScouts@gmail.com
