Scouts and Scouters,
After many years of promising to organize a trip to seabase, I’ve finally gotten off my kiester and am ready to inform and explore interest in this high-adventure.
We will meet on Saturday, December 16 at 1 pm in the Bayport Library. I’ve yet to reserve the room, so watch for a follow up email to confirm the meeting location and time.
There are a couple of deadlines looming, so we will need to gauge interest, form crews, create an account, and be ready to submit for a 2019 adventure by Jan 23, 2018.
Another option would be to register for any remaining open adventures in 2018. I’ll bring information on what is available.
In this first meeting we will review the available 2018 and 2019 adventures and take a poll on what scouts and adults are interested in going.
I’m sure many of you are asking about timing and cost.
Most adventures range from 5 – 7 days and take place in the Florida Keys, Bahamas, St. Croix or St. Thomas. All adventures are open over the summer months and some over spring break and in the fall.
Cost can range from $1,600 to over $2,500 per person, all in (accommodations, food, travel, gear) accept your own spending money, which should be minimal.
There is good information on the 2019 brochure found here: http://www.bsaseabase.org/filestore/seabase/pdf/2019/2019FSBBrochure.pdf
I will need some help with getting all the steps completed by Jan 23, so please come ready to volunteer if your interested in going (or even if your not).
Here’s some photo’s from our last time down: https://photos.app.goo.gl/bdewiUUiG6x4JmY32
Here’s some links on youtube of other troops adventures. It’s worth a peek to get stoked about this.
