Willapa Harbor Sea Scouts
Helping the community, one boater at a time.
Tim Quigg, a man with a passion for helping young
people realized the potential they have living in
Pacific and Grays Harbor Counties. Willapa
Harbor Sea Scouts, BSA, Ship #728, was developed
in South Bend and Raymond in 2017 by Tim. Tim
reached out to Raymond and South Bend High Schools where he received support both from the superintendents and the faculty. Under a partnership with the two school districts, students are released for a few hours once a week to learn boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage. They also learn life skills promoting better citizenship. Youth are invited from all local schools to participate in the program from 1:15-3:00 on Thursdays.
We work with local industry to build the program to meet employment needs of the area. Along with field trips to maritime museums, swimming pools and local seaports, we are often visited by maritime professionals who speak to the scouts about their opportunities in the maritime industry.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in volunteering with our Sea Scout program, or a youth who would like to join between the ages of 14-20, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or put your email in the field below!
