Troop 525 will be sending three crews to Seabase Out Island Adventure next year (tentatively late May/early June).  There are currently five remaining slots.  Two of them need to be adult leaders; the other three can be leaders or youth.  If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Robert Gates.

If you are already signed up to go to Seabase in 2019, please plan on attending a planning meeting on August 13

All leaders will need to be registered with the troop, have an updated BSA Medical form parts ABC, be current in updated YPT training, take the Wilderness First Aid training (WFA), and have current CPR certification.  Also, all participants will need to be able to pass the standard BSA swim test and be certified as a swimmer.  It is recommended that you take the Fall WFA course, as the Spring course is popular and may fill up.
