A Cape Cod Sea Scout Ship & Explorer Club

Our Mission and Our Vision


  • Our Vision: Make our community stronger by supplementing and enriching the values and character of our young boys and girls.
  • Our Mission: To prepare the youth to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of our Oath and Law. Click to view
  • Our Promise to the Community: We are a fun, "hands-on" program that builds better, and more mature, young men and women. Our program and outdoor adventures prepare our young people for a lifetime of character, leadership, and sense of community.

    With your assistance, our mentors will help to mold your young people into an experienced, well-trained source of pride, and a resource for all.

Our Results Since 1947


Ship 72 members have gone on to become Pilots, Engineers, Writers, Teachers, Investors, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Paralegals, and Insurance Specialists, as well as Merchant Mariners, Boat Builders, Yacht Captains/Crew, Marine Business Owners and other prominent, successful business people thanks in no small part to their Sea Scout training.

This doesn't even begin to address the positive influences that each Ship 72 member has had on his or her family, friends, communities, and businesses whether as owners, bosses/supervisors, employees, or just as customers due to the discipline, respect, and self-confidence they have developed.

It is a fact that young men and women who go through the Scouting programs have a giant step up in their day-by-day preparation for adulthood and what it holds for them.
