Event Description:

  • Scouts who would like to do swimming or boating activities during the year need to pass the BSA Swim Test

  • There will be an opportunity to do the swim test at Summer Camp, but it is much preferred to take care of this early

  • The swim test to be a "Swimmer" involves the following; Jump in Feet first into deep water; Surface & Swim 3 laps of a 25 yard pool using any stroke you want; Swim a 4th lap using a resting back stroke; Show that you can float on your back

  • The swim test to be a "Beginner" involves jumping in feet first into deep water, swimming 25 feet one direction and then swimming 25 feet back. (About one lap)

  • After scouts finish the swim test they will be able to work on a few aquatic rank requirements and maybe play around in the small pool if time allows
