OPCYC extends its outreach to young people in the community through Sea Scouting. Sea Scouting is for boys and girls ages 14 through 20 whom, along with adult leaders, are registered with the Boy Scouts of America. The program matches the interests of young people with the expertise and resources of Scout leaders and other adults in the community. The program is carried out through a Sea Scout "ship." Its purpose is to provide the experiences that will affect the positive development of youth at a critical stage in their lives and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.
The ship elects its own youth leaders who undertake the planning and conduct of their cruises, under the direction of skilled adults. The crew meets at the clubhouse on Sunday afternoons 1-5 pm and operates their Pearson 28-2 and Islander 26 from Old Point Comfort Marina.
If you know a young person who would be interested in becoming a part of our crew, contact:
Norm Effinger, Sea Scout Leader or Patsy Tiemsin, Member at Large (Sea Scouts)
