Swimming at Webelos Camp

On the day that you arrive, as soon as you get settled on your campsite, you will come down to the water for our orientation and a swim check.  


Scouts and leaders will qualify at the following swimming levels:


Learners - Just get in and splash around


Beginners - Swim 50 feet.  Jump into water over your head, swim 25 feet, turn around and swim back.  Its that easy!


Swimmers - Swim 100 yards as follows: Jump in over your head, swim 75 yards on your stomach or side, then swim the last 25 yards on your back.


After that, you show that you can float and you are a swimmer.  


You'll want to qualify as a swimmer to swim in all the swim areas.  If you don't qualify as a swimmer the first time, we'll help you improve so that you are a swimmer before you leave.


At Webelos Camp you will swim at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
