Join our "Green Shirted Friends" and participate in our activities too!

Our Green Shirted Friends program offers older Scouts a fun Scouting opportunity but we expect our youth members to remain active in their Troop, Crew or Ship. Venture age Girl Scouts and American Heritage Girls youth members are welcome too. We will gladly answer adult leader or parents questions about our programs and our crew. Most of our youth members and our youth Green Shirted Friends associate with Crew-911 for our First Responder/Lifeguarding program.
