IN THE MORNING, 8:30 AM - flag pick up

Spring Troop Aquatic Event - Sunday, June 3rd from 4-6pm

Posted on May 21 2018 - 9:29pm

Hi everyone! Registration is now active for the Troop's annual aquatic event. Being held at Wakefield (Audrey Moore) Rec Center on June 3rd from 4-6pm, this is your Scout's opportunity to perform summer camp or high adventure swim test. It's also a great way to complete all aquatic requirements through First Class. This is only offered once a year, so we hope you can make it.  Please read the instructions on the event since there's certain info needed when you register. Unless we somehow finish early, there is no free swim time planned. If we finish early, then, it's possible. It's very likely that there will be 30-50+ Scouts there over the two hours. Any help parents can provide would be appreciated. if you can help, please add that to the adult registration.  Please refer to this link for more information on the BSA Swimming Test  http://www.ncacbsa.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/bsa_swim_classificatio... . Please click on the read more link below/to the right for Aquatics-related Rank Advancement Requirements for 2nd and 1st Class.  Thanks.  Adam Birnbaum Image result for boy scout swimming merit badge
