Mariner Ship 1548
We are GSUSA Mariner Scout Ship 1548, a troop for girls in Calvert County, Charles and St. Mary’s County interested in a variety of Nautical and Maritime activities.
Our troop, properly called a Ship, is a Studio 2B program for girls 11 – 14 and is designed to teach leadership and responsibility through boating and water related programs. We operate as part of the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital (GSCNC). To enhance the Mariners program further, it overlaps with that of BSA Sea Scout Ship 548 based out of Avenue near St. Clements Island. As their Sister Ship, Mariners participate in SSS-548’s training and other fun activities.
The Mariner Girl Scouts started in the 1930s, and while it has changed over the years, we want to continue to uphold the traditions of the sea under the auspices GSUSA high adventure program. Presently, there are only a handful of Mariner Ships in the US. Mariner Scouting is a fun and rigorous program that leads our youth through the skills necessary to be competent sailors and mature leaders.
