Boy Scouts and Venturers can earn Swimming or Lifesaving merit badges during our five session program. All participants need to be in good physical condition and should be prepared to attend every session. Wear your bathing suit, bring a change of clothes. If you feel you need swim goggles bring them. Be prepared!
Swimming Merit Badge will require the ability to sufficiently demonstrate the breast stroke, side stroke, elementary backstroke, and front crawl and to swim 150 yards.
Lifesaving Merit Badge will requires the ability to swim ¼ of a mile and participants should be skilled at breast stroke and side stroke.
Earning these badges now will free up valuable time at Summer Camp allowing scouts to pursue other unique opportunities for fun and adventure.
Cost: $5 per participant
