We will be swimming at the South Western School District swim pool during their community swim during our regular meeting time. Scouts are to be dropped off and picked up at the swim pool.
Here is the requirements from Sea Base 2015 brochure
All participants must complete the BSA swim review upon arrival.
Swimming Ability (This is the same requirement for Camp Rodney)
All participants (both youth and adults) are required to pass the standard BSA swim test before arriving at Sea Base: jump feet first into water over your head, swim 75 yards in a strong manner using a forward stroke, turn over, swim 25 yards on your back using a resting back stroke, float motionless on your back. Because of the nature of our programs, all participants should be comfortable in the water. All participants must take a BSA swim review upon arrival to ensure swimming ability.
