Celebrating the Sea Scout Centennial

Sea Scouts is a program defined tradition, maritime adventure and fun.  Sea Scouts are encouraged to celebrate our Centennial with hosting their own Centennial Events across the United States.

Approved Sea Scout Centennial Events are eligible to purchase a Centennial Event Flag from National Sea Scout Director’s office.  Ships that participate in an approved Centennial activity are eligible to order a Centennial pennant to fly under their Ship Flag (Flag & Pennant applications will be available soon).  Applications are available to organize your own Centennial event on SeaScout.org.

Sea Scout Centennial Events must include elements of the 4 S’s of Sea Scouts:

Scouting: “The Sea Scout lives the Scout Oath and Scout Law every day in every way”

The Sea Scout Event must contain two of the following elements:

         Promote the Sea Promise, Scout Oath & Scout Law

         Youth should be in the appropriate dress according their Ship’s bylaws

         Conduct a meaningful ceremony

         Present Colors at the beginning or close of the event

         Propose your own unique Scouting element

Seamanship: “…For the Safety of your shipmates and your ship…”

  1. We were hoping that there would be lots of things avalable for the 100th Year similar to the BSA 100 Year in 2010. Maybe pathes of the logo, tee shirts, polos, hats, backpacks, and so on. What are the plans?
