Florida Sea Base Spring Break 2017 (April 9-15)

  

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN APRIL 2017???
  • Troop 216 of Plymouth Meeting [web - Facebook] is going to Florida Sea Base and has openings for three Troop 98 Scouts and one leader (18+) to join them on their trip; some of you may remember the four Scouts from Troop 216 who joined us for Summer Camp at Ockanickon in 2015; two of these four are going.

  • They are leaving on Sunday 9 April (possibly Saturday 8 April) and returning on Saturday 15 April (this coincides with Wissahickon Spring Break)

  • The cost is expected to be around $1300 per person (depends on airfare and ground transport to the Keys)

  • There's a small description of the WICKED AWESOME program you'd be doing below and a more detailed program package HERE (it's called Florida Keys Adventure and is listed on page 33).  Also, check out THIS VIDEO.
OTHER REQUIREMENTS: 
  1. You must be 14 by Sep 1 of this year OR be 13 and be in 8th grade. 
  2. You need to be able to pass the BSA Swim Test (just like at Summer Camp). 
  3. You'll need to complete a BSA Health Record (with doctor signature). 
  4. You must weigh no more than 295 pounds (phew!).
  5. Adults have to register with BSA (which includes a background check) and complete Youth Protection Training.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN GOING PLEASE CLICK HERE AND CONTACT MR. TREJO ASAP.  First come-first served, but with a higher preference for a Scout who's bringing an adult leader (his father or older brother [18+]).

OUR SCOUTS WHO HAVE GONE TO SEA BASE DESCRIBE IT AS AN AWESOME VACATION!

Florida Keys Adventure

Want to experience everything the Florida Keys have to offer? You will paddleboard, ocean kayak, sail, boat, fish, snorkel coral reefs, learn about marine ecosystems, travel to Big Munson Island for an overnight adventure and visit historic Key West. Every day is a new adventure!

Other than your overnight on Munson Island, you will spend each night in an air conditioned dormitory.

If you are looking for a program with a wide variety of aquatic activities, this is your adventure.

This is a six-night, seven-day adventure.
