AHOY! Start Planning Now. Mark your calendars for July 18–23, 2012, to sail with Sea Scouts from across the nation and around the world in celebration of a Century of Sea Scouting. Join with hundreds of Sea Scouts and friends of Sea Scouting as we commemorate the first Sea Scout activities undertaken by the Boy Scouts of America in 1912. 

This exciting and historic event will take place in Baltimore Maryland‟s Inner Harbor. This will commence six days of celebrations are planned to mark one hundred years of service to the youth of America through the Sea Scouting program. The culmination will be a Fleet Review of the Parade of Small Ships as they sail past Fort McHenry, Birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner and a gala 100th Birthday Dinner with cake, fireworks, and dancing. Vessel berthing accommodations will be available in the inner harbor for Sea Scout ships arriving by water. Sea Scout units arriving by other means can be accommodated in authentic World War II troop ship accommodations such as the Liberty Ship JOHN W. BROWN or crew berthing onboard USCGC TANEY, the submarine USS TORSK, or the USS CONSTELLATION. A water-taxi service will provide ferry service between BROWN and the principal commemorative venue.

The participant cost will be $150, which includes a commemorative t-shirt, Saturday night meal, Parade of Small Ships, and admission to the Sea Scout Expo all days. Vessel berthing is expected to be free of charge, or at minimal cost. For further details and updates, go to http://www.scoutfleet.org.
