The Mariner Program is a special interest program for 7th
through 12th grade troops or girls from different
troops; the optimum minimum number of girls in a ship is six.
Individual girls can participate with an existing ship while
maintaining participation and registration with her existing troop or
a group of girls and leaders can establish their own ship.
Our focus is on water activities, including canoeing, swimming,
sailing and related nautical skills. This old, well-established
program offers girls a wide variety of personal development and
Mariner Ships (Troops) participate in the Mariner Program in
addition to standard Girl Scout activities. When a Mariner graduates
from high school, she is eligible to continue to participate as a
member of the Barnacle Ship, whose members administer the various
events and serve as mentors to the girls.
