Florida Sea Base Contingent 2019

Event Details

The Mid-America Council will be sending a council contingent to the Florida Sea Base in 2019! We are planning to send 1 crew, 6-8 people, on the St. Thomas Eco Adventure. Scouts will set sail aboard a 40-foot-plus yacht with an experienced captain, and have the opportunity to sail and snorkel. They will team up with the University in the Virgin Islands and do research in turtle counts, coral reefs, or other environmental ecosystems. The Sea Base Contingent Committee reserves the right to not accept a registration if the candidate is not fit physically or emotionally for the trip.
