Tomorrow is the first Sea Scout Recruiting Day

What did you do this weekend? If you're in any Scouting program, the answer probably comes with a great story.

And now is the time for members of Sea Scouts, BSA to share their stories with potential recruits. The first-ever Sea Scout Recruiting Day is tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 25), and it's a great opportunity for young men and women to learn more about the program.

If you know some seafaring youths, have them search for their nearest ship online. 

Sea Scouting started in 1912, so its centennial comes right on the heels of the BSA's centennial. As Sea Scouting begins the countdown to the end of its first century in operation, Sea Scouts are looking to increase their membership from 7,000 to 10,000. That means that every Sea Scout Ship would need to add six members between now and the end of 2012.

That starts with Sea Scout Fall Recruiting Week, which ends tomorrow. All week, Sea Scouts have been showcasing the best aspects of their program and asking potential recruits, "What did you do this weekend?"
