"A new Sea Scout Ship for Monmouth County"

Charley Spitz

Wednesday, February 25th, at 730 pm in Monmouth Beach Community Center in Monmouth Beach on Ocean Boulevard.

Boy Scouts of America leaders Charley Spitz and Alan Rowe made a presentation about seascouting and introduced the NMHA and BSA seacouting program cooperation. This meeting was of particular interest to parents, community leaders and educational organizations that are interested in low cost co-ed outdoor education and scouting programs.

The Sea Scout program is the oldest of the scouting programs. The program is based on rank advancement and culminates in the Quartermaster rank which is actually more challenging to achieve than the famous Boy Scout Eagle rank. Also Sea Scouting is a Co-ed program, and therefore both boys and girls can achieve Quartermaster rank.

The NMHA summer River Ranger programs and the Sea Scouts will take place on the Navesink River estuary where the Dorn family will provide access to a 15-acre island on the Navesink. Irwin's Marina will provide space for a Sea Scouts vessel to be berthed at the Marina in Red Bank.
