Camden - Kings Bay Council
The Camden – Kings Bay Council of the Navy League of the United States supports the commands and the men and women of the sea services and their families stationed at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and in St. Marys, Georgia.
Our monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month (September thru June) and feature guest speakers who update the community on local or national military concerns, challenges and successes. We have hosted Admiral Mike Mullen, retired Joint Chiefs Chairman; ADM Jonathan W. Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations; RADM Joseph Mulloy, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Budget; and Commanders of Submarine Group 10 and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.
We have also had the opportunity to host the officers and crew of visiting British SSBN HMS Victorious and the fast attack sub HMS Trafalgar, and participated in the annual celebration of Trafalgar Night with SSBN HMS Vengeance.
We have proudly been involved in the commissioning or return-to-service of USS FLORIDA, USS GEORGIA, USCG SEA DOG, and USCG SEA DRAGON, and have adopted Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and, by extension, all of its commands, and the United States Coast Guard Maritime Safety & Security Team 91108 in St. Marys.
Our Council is a founding member of the Camden County community program EDICCIMAD (Every Day In Camden County Is Military Appreciation Day) and supports Operation Paperback, which packages and delivers paperback books to service members serving overseas. Annually, we collect personal care supplies and deliver them to the VA Medical Center in Lake City, FL. And, we conduct annual Wreaths Across America ceremonies in Kingsland and St. Marys.
Our signature events include our Toys for Tots Luncheon in December and our Annual Sea Services Awards Banquet in May. We sponsor and participate in base and submarine tours, change of command ceremonies, boat welcoming and departure parties, the Silver & Gold Dolphin Auction, the Submarine Officers Birthday Ball, the Navy Ball, the Marine Corps Ball, the Enlisted Submarine Ball and other interesting, exciting and educational events.
We consistently earn Outstanding or Meritorious Council recognition from the national Navy League of the United States, and have been honored for both our website and our newsletter, The Trident.
