GLEN JEAN, WV (WVNS)– In 1912, Sea Scouts emerged out of the Boy Scouts of America, where scouts between aged 14 to 21 can explore on or above bodies of water throughout the country.
Things such as scuba diving, paddle-boarding, and more are offered to these scouts. With this, they have the opportunity to learn skills that will help them with future careers. Ron Sunker, who serves on the National Sea Scout Committee, said sea scouts can land a career in marine areas and maritime industries.
In fact, the World Scout Jamboree is showcasing this program for those interested.
“The program has a lot of different parts to it,” Sunker said. “They might be interested in joining the maritime industry. Maybe it’s a start to find what it’s like, because they could go on to one of the maritime schools in the country. They may be interested in learning to sail or how to drive a boat. It could be as simple as they want to hang out with their friends.”
The tent is open to all at the World Scout Jamboree. For more information, visit the Sea Scout’s website.
