Sea Scouts is the second oldest branch of the Boys Scouts of America. Founded in 1912, the program set out to promote better citizenship and improve Scouts' boating skills along with their outdoor, social and service experiences. Today the program provides a unique opportunity for young men and women, ages 14 to 20, to get out on the water and learn about seamanship. 

The Scout units, called ships, are established all across the country, but the closest for Coastside kids is in Foster City.
