sea scoutingsea scoutingSea Scouting is the only Venturing specialty that has its own advancement program. This program is outlined in the Sea Scouting Manual.

Sea Scouting advancements are approved by the ship’s quarterdeck. In the case of the Quartermaster Award, the application is reviewed by the Ship’s committee with a member of the district advancement committee as chairman. Since the Quartermaster Award is a Venturing recognition, it may be earned by any young man or young woman registered as a Venture up to his or her 21st birthday.
