Seabadge is being conducted this fall in two locations, Maryland and Florida. The Northeast Region Centennial Seabadge Conference (SB-17-MD-2013) is scheduled for October 11-13, 2013, at Camp Round Meadow, Catoctin Mountain Park, Thurmont, MD. The Southern Region Seabadge is scheduled for November 8-10, 2013 at the Marywood Conference Center, 235 Marywood Dr., Switzerland, Florida The Seabadge Conference was developed in 1970 by a group of Sea Scout leaders in California and is designed to be an advanced leadership and management course for adult leaders of the Boy Scouts of America's Sea Scouting program and is offered by each of the four BSA Regions in two or three locations each year. It is delivered as a weekend course to those Sea Scout leaders, as well as Boy Scout and Venturing leaders, who have completed the Sea Scout leader specific training. The focus on the course is leadership and management for Sea Scout leaders. Seabadge is not a course in seamanship - Occoneechee Scout Sign August 2013 Vol 9 # 8 8

9 this is covered by the basic leader training courses and seamanship courses offered by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and United States Power Squadron. Attending a Seabadge conference helps adult leaders hone management, leadership, and presentation skills and provides tools to these leaders so that they may use them and share them with others in their day-to-day activities as a way to reach the Aims of Scouting. Seabadge is a participatory experience. There is intensive individual involvement of both the participants and faculty in seminars, workshops, role playing and discussion. Any registered Sea Scout leader active in his/her Sea Scout Ship or Council is eligible for nomination provided the following requirements have been met: 1. Completed Sea Scout Adult Leader Basic Training. 2. Actively and effectively served in his or her current registered position in Sea Scouting for at least one continuous year. (This is may be waived in the Southern Region) 3. Is approved for participation for his or her local Council. 4. Qualified conference attendees are awarded the Seabadge Trident. The award is a silver colored pin-on badge with the Sea Scout emblem (the Boy Scout universal badge over an anchor), superimposed on a trident and surrounded by a laurel wreath. The silver trident within a circle of blue olive leaves is the ancient symbol of Neptune's leadership over his dominions of the sea combined within a circle of friendship. The three prongs of the trident are symbolic of the three purposes of the BSA - citizenship, character and fitness development. The trident also symbolizes that the Seabadge recipient is a spearhead of Sea Scouting in attaining the program objectives of the Boy Scouts of America. If you re not a Sea Scout leader but would like to apply odds are you will be accepted.

The program includes conference periods on Sea Scouting aims & methods, traditions, instructional techniques, organization patterns, managing the program, communication, activities, interpersonal relations, operations, leadership skills, and ideals. However, it IS NOT a hands on, physical skills training course, for which the local Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron would be an excellent resource. Upon completion of the Seabadge Conference, a certificate and pin will be presented. Occoneechee Scout Sign August 2013 Vol 9 # 8 21

22 Quarters & Meals: Because of the nature of the conference format, all participants will be expected to be quartered at the conference facility and take their meals on-site. The meals that will be provided include Friday supper, three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL OR RELIGIOUS CONDITION WHICH WOULD PROHIBIT BEING QUARTERED AND/OR FED AT THE SITE, THIS MUST BE MADE KNOWN AT THE TIME YOU SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION. NO EXCEPTIONS CAN BE MADE AFTER ARRIVAL AT THE CONFERENCE. No one should leave the facility during the conference unless there are extenuating circumstances. The center will provide bedding (sheets, blanket, etc.). It is recommended that you bring your own toiletries. Quarters will be in two-person rooms with a separate bathroom and shower. There will be separate quarters for male and female participants. Conference Cost: The Seabadge Conference fee is $ A $50.00 minimum deposit must accompany the written application and be received no later than October 11, The balance ($125.00) will be due upon check-in at the conference facility.

For those serving elsewhere in Scouting, the uniform corresponding to your position is appropriate. Course pictures will be taken prior to the Saturday evening meal. Each Seabadge participant will be expected to be familiar with the Sea Scout Manual (current printing) and the Venturing Leadership materials. All of this material can be obtained through the local Council Service Center or from the BSA national supply at Participants are urged to prepare a small display of their ship's programs, activities, techniques, newsletters, or publications.

The Nomination form, accompanied by the $50 deposit, should be sent to: Seabadge Conference, P. O.
