Sea Scouts, BSA will hold a Seabadge course in the Rio Grande
Council. The course will take place March 27-29, 2020 at Camp
Perry in Rio Hondo, Texas. Come join us!

Seabadge is the premier adult leadership training course offered by
the Boy Scouts of America for Sea Scout leaders and those interested in the Sea Scout program. The ultimate purpose of Seabadge is to help adult leaders deliver the highest quality Sea Scouting program to young people to help them achieve their highest potential. Note that Seabadge does not cover topics like boating, knots, or other program-related materials found in the Sea Scout Manual.

You can read more about Seabadge here: https://seascout.org/adult-training/seabadge/

You do not have to be a Sea Scout Leader to attend . Naturally, Sea Scout adult leaders will directly apply what they learn to their program. Others will benefit from the course given that much of the content is applicable to other scouting programs. We invite anyone interested in learning the Sea Scout program to register and participate!

The Rio Grande Council has just embarked on a historic journey to revitalize Camp Perry.  Some of you may be aware that Camp Perry is the oldest continuously operating Boy Scout Camp in Texas.  This year marks the 91st anniversary of this outstanding facility.  Camp Perry was acquired just one year after the council received the charter from the National Council in 1927.

In September 2016, after concluding a feasibility study, the Board of the Council authorized a $6.1 million capital campaign named "Adelante Con Camp Perry"  Our pre-campaign commitments have exceeded all expectations.

The campaign will result in developing several new facilities that include a new air-conditioned dining hall, new waterfront, a multipurpose health and fitness, facility to serve youth in our communities.  In addition to new facilities, the campaign will include a maintenance endowment and a campership endowment to enable all youth to attend camp.

Our youth deserve a first-class camping facility to enhance program opportunities and prepare them to be the leaders of our communities.
