Kansas Sea Base
Experience an exciting and challenging weekend of inland water safety and boating activities on Tuttle Creek Reservoir near Manhattan. Experienced instructors will give scouts hands-on boating experience while completing one of these merit badges: Small Boat Sailing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Motor Boating, or Water Sports.
If you have already earned the small boat sailing merit badge and would like to sail the bigger boats at Blue Valley Yacht Club, we are also offering an Advanced Sailing activity (not a merit badge) this year as well.
NOTE: Tuttle Creek is still at an extremely high level. Because of flooding and extensive damage, if water levels are not low enough by mid-July so the area can dry out and become habitable again we will have to cancel the Kansas Sea Base this year. Our staff is in daily contact with the BVYC and the Corps of Engineers monitoring the reservoir. We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes in planning your summer. Check this site for any developments which may affect Sea Base.
