Swim Test Prep

To get ready for summer camp, we are meeting twice a week to review swimming skills for the swim test. Boys who are interested can work on the Swimming merit badge too.

For the swim test, boys need to jump into deep water, level off, swim 75 yards of a strong stoke (front/back crawl, breast, or side), then swim 25 yards of elementary back stroke, and finish by floating or treading for 30-60 seconds. They must be comfortable the whole way and not exhausted by the end.

Boys who pass the swim test will be able to be in a kayak by themselves. To finish the Kayaking merit badge, boys will need to show they can exit the kayak while capsized, climb back into the kayak, and dump a kayak over another.

2019 Merit Badge Fair Homework

This merit badge fair is designed to connect scouts with counselors and to give them the opportunity to start several badges. Scouts should not expect to finish any badges in just the ninety-minute session time. If a scout would like to finish a badge in April, he can begin working on the requirements as soon as he registers. Below are the counselors’ goals for what they hope to finish on April 13 and what they expect the scout will need to do independently.

Do you use Scoutbook? Connect your scout to the counselor for easy communication and monitoring requirement progress.
