Hello Everyone
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and is getting ready for Ockanickon as we depart 8/9 for a week of fun and excitment. 
I have created an album in the photop albums section of Troop 20 website. I added few pictures that I was able to take and would like for anyone who would like to share to load their pictures as well.  You can send me your pictures in a ZIP file and I can load them or you can load them by going to the "Administration" section, selecting the content link and then pictures. The next step is to select 2015 Small Sailing Boat MB album and load your pictures.

Seabase 2016!

Posted on Jul 1 2015 - 8:35pm

We have secured a week for Seabase in Summer 2016 at the Boy Scout Sea Base Camp in Islamorada, FL.  The dates are Wednesday, August 3rd through Wednesday, August 10th.  This is a high adventure program for scouts who will be at least 13 years old and have completed the 8th grade by Summer 2016.  This is a scuba diving program.  All who attend must be certified scuba divers by August 2016.  We will arrange an opportunity for participants to get certified locally before the trip next summer at an additional cost.  The cost for seabase only which includes air transporation, dive fees, lodging and food is $1300. Again for those that are not certified scuba divers, there will be an additional cost estimated at $1500 to become scuba certified before the trip, details to be determined.  There are 8 slots currently available.  I will attempt to gain more slots if more people sign up, but the first 8 people will be guaranteed a slot.  At the next troop meeting in the fall I will be glad to answer any questions.
