“Only in the Erie Canal” gateway to the Finger lakes


The Erie Canal Flotilla serves the education and program needs of Youth and Adult Sea Scouts, while promoting and growing Sea Scouts across Upstate New York, North Central Pennsylvania and Vermont.  The Flotilla reinforces the mission of the Boy Scouts of America which is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

     The Flotilla hosts training to further the education of both youth and adults.  In addition, an annual Regatta gives Sea Scouts the chance to race on the water no matter their skill level.  Additional program events and monthly phone conferences are held to help foster inter unit relationships.  This is designed to strengthen the sense of involvement and participation among members of all the units in our Flotilla.
