Sea Scouts is a co-ed program for youth 14 to 20-years old, or 13-years old and have graduated from 8th grade. The program consists of leadership and character development set in a maritime environment. Each unit is called a ‘ship’ but may or may not, have a vessel.

Orange County is home to five Sea Scout ships, which are nationally and internationally acclaimed. In the past decade, local sea scouts have won four international sailing championships, two ships were honored as the top program in the nation, and three sea scouts were selected as the top youth-leader in the nation.
