Swim Tests for Summer Camp

Posted on Updated on

 

from Paul Kovach.

All Scouts and adults involved in troop aquatic activities are required to have their swimming ability defined by the BSA Swim Test.  These activities would include aquatics at summer camp (Swimming, Canoeing, Kayaking, Lifesaving, Sailing, etc) and troop canoeing events.

If you or your Scout did not attend the T514 Swim Test on April 1 at Pike Aquatic Center, there are a few other options to complete this test.  One can go in advance of the activity to a local pool that has a certified Lifeguard.  The requirements are attached so that the Lifeguard could perform the test.  Availability and out-of-pocket costs may vary for each.  Below are some potential or known opportunities.

Finally, for Ransburg only, a scout or scouter may take the test at Ransburg on the afternoon of troop arrival.
