Members of the Sea Scouts Ship #759 under the capable leadership of Skipper James Klimek (center).  Each year the Scouts provide our Chesapeake Bay Chapter with great support during our 3-day classic boat festival in St. Michaels. Sea Scouting is a co-ed outdoor program for young adults ages 14-20.



Young Boaters

Our Chesapeake Bay Chapter has an ongoing commitment to engage children of all ages in maritime history, skills and activities. Here are some of our annual programs and events:

    • Boats for Kids
      Held during our Annual Boat Festival in St. Michaels, MD and sponsored by Hagerty Insurance and Antique Boat America, this activity is targeted to kids aged 2-12. The children assemble small boats (which they can take home at the end of the day) and learn to sail them in a special pool.
    • Sea Scouts (Ship #759—Baltimore, MD)
      Under the capable direction of Captain James, this maritime division of the Boy Scouts of America teaches young adults (male & female, ages 14-20) how to restore, maintain and skipper boats donated to their organization. This local chapter is also a major contributor to our Annual Boat Festival volunteer staff.
    • Donations
      Each year our Chapter donates funds to:
      • Area organizations committed to education in maritime skills and history
      • The ACBS International Youth Development Program
