Ship 510 is working with Ranger Stan Stanley of Camp Moultrie to promote
aqua activities. The camp has 45 boats of various sizes. We are providing
leadership for maintenance and training, with the goal of helping other
scout units to activity use this resource. Starting in 2007, we have
provided organization leadership for the annual Sailoree program. For the
year long program, we are meeting one Saturday per month for boat
maintenance and sail training. This is open to all scouts as an individual
or a unit. To be informed, you need to be on Skipper THom Harrison's email

Notes on membership: Ship 510 is a coed unit for teens
14-20. A Venture Scout can be members of more than one unit, such as, Boy Scout
and a Venture. If a scout is working towards an Eagle award, he can continue in
a Venture unit if he has reached the rank of First Class. Teens do not need any
prior experience in aqua activities. Our goal is to offer experience. They do
not need prior membership in a Scout unit. Our goal is to help teens develop leadership,
responsibility and decision making skills.
