The tentative schedule is below, I recommend getting there early to check in, dropping your things at our campsite and then going right to the swim test. The swim test can also be taken the next day but it is best to do it Friday night. Everyone needs a swim test for the pool (there is a shallow section for "non-swimmers".)


When you arrive, there will be camp staff at the check in to direct you to our campsite. Please eat a meal before arrival as there is not a dinner served on Friday evening.


Swim Test Expectations


All swimmers MUST have a swim tag that designates their current swimming ability: Swimmer, Beginner, or Non-Swimmer. All scouts are considered non-swimmers unless they pass the Beginner or Swimmer tests. Scouts are only allowed to enter areas of the pool for which they are qualified for, based on their current swim test. Additionally, usage of the row boats and canoes at the aquatics beach is dependent on your swim test. Each boat MUST have at least 1 swimmer on board at all times. In the past, the Aquatics Director has allowed non-swimmer scouts to share a boat with a non-swimmer adult. However, this exception is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of the Aquatics Director.

Non-Swimmer:

  • Anyone who does not attempt the swim test, or cannot pass the Beginner test.

Beginner:

  • Jump into the pool

  • Swim across the width of the pool and back (~40 yards) using any stroke of your choice.

Swimmer:

  • Jump into the pool

  • Swim across the width of the pool and back, twice (~80 yards) using a front stroke of your choice.

  • Swim one more width (~20 yards) using a resting back-stroke.

  • Perform a resting back float for 10 seconds.
