I have mentioned it many times, but have not spelled it out in great detail in email.
Troop 222 is headed to Florida Sea Base:
Who: Any scout that will graduate the 8th grade by June 2014
When: Travel Dates: July 30 – August 7 (Sailing August 1 – 6)
Where: Florida Keys, down to Key West and back.
Why: Learn sailing skills, about the environment, snorkel and have fun.
We have space for 1 or 2 more scouts to join the group, we must be 18-20 participants. Currently we have 18 signed up. This adventure will be aboard a 75 foot sail boat. http://www.bsaseabase.org/Adventures/SeaExploring.aspx
Some scouts (and families) will be spending 4 extra days in Fort Lauderdale SCUBA diving. I estimate that cost to be about $200 for food and hotel, plus the cost of the SCUBA outings. If you want to get certified it will be an additional $350.
If you are interested you are committing to the event and being active in the troop for 4 months, and attending 4 of the 5 remaining Sea Base meetings. At this point deposits are non-refundable unless you find someone to take your spot. Please contact me immediately if you are interested.
