... Thank You for your question Elizabeth.
Sea Scout Ship 258, Colonial Beach, VA, is a newly formed unit in Rivers District, Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Sea Scouting has been a part of the Scouting Program since 1912 as a part of the Explorer Scouts. Although more popular overseas in other countries, the popularity of Sea Scouting in the United States is on the rise!

We serve the youth of the Town of Colonial Beach, VA, in water based activities such as sailing, scuba diving, boat handling, and advanced swimming and lifesaving skills.

Sea Scouting is open to youth 14-20 and as always Adult volunteers and leaders. As a youth run organization, the adults are present for guidance, advice, and troubleshooting. The Boatswain is the youth leadership position that works closely with the youth and adults to assure that a quality program is provided to the members of the ship.

If you have more questions you can ask them in person at one of our upcoming Open Houses and get to meet the adult leaders, the Skipper Holly Graf, and Committee Chair, Boone Hichborn.

Thank you. My husband is a retired Naval Officer and sails. He is getting ready to retire "again" and I am going to tell him about this as he may want to volunteer.

Thank you Frank, for this information. And lots of thanks for your many years of dedication to our scouts of Colonial Beach

What can your efforts do? For starters…….

- Inspire, challenge, instruct, maybe leave a lasting memory and alter a life...or a hundreds of lives.
:“There is nothing more significant in the development of young Scouts than the positive influence of a Scoutmaster who cares and inspires them to achieve.

The words of my Scoutmaster…so 60 years ago, have never left me, and I think about him whenever I take on a new challenge. His presence is always with me
in those quiet moments of reflection and thanks.”

Again, I thank you for your involvement —Scouts listen to you because you live what you say

Holly Graf is the skipper? The Sea Hag/ female Captain Bligh herself? She was RELIEVED OF COMMAND in 2010 for verbally abusing and assaulting her crew while CO of a US cruiser. Good person to put in charge of youth. A real positive role model.

Went there on Saturday and met "the Female Captain Bligh" herself. She didn't yell at me or my kids. Maybe if we give her a chance this could bring a lot of good to our community. Also she is just one of the several people that are leading this. What we hear on the news and media doesn't always speak the whole truth. Yes she was relieved but there may have been more to the story than what you read. What I do know is that I was impressed with the way all of the organizers of the crew seemed to be prepared. I think this will provide a good opportunity for some of our young kids.

The first sentence was meant to be sarcastic for those who have poor literary skills.
