Looking for games or resources related to pirates, desert islands, or sea ships? Check out this Shipwrecked theme page for ideas. Many of these would work well with my Ocean theme or my Under the Sea theme for Cub Scouts. #CubScouts #Ocean #Shipwrecked

Bears can do their Salmon Run adventure. Webelos can work on Aquanaut. Scouts BSA have the Swimming merit badge.
