Summer Camp Swim Check

WHAT: Summer Camp Swim Test
WHERE: Camp Brorein waterfront
WHEN: 1PM on Saturday the 30th

In preparation for summer camp, we will need to have ALL summer camp attendees meet at Camp Brorein next Saturday the 30th at 1pm.

We will be doing our swim checks, so please wear a swim suit and bring a towel.

We are doing our swim checks prior to summer camp this year so that we won’t have to worry about getting them done when we arrive there.  In the past this has been a problem and not everyone got one done – and as a result could not go swimming at all.  We want everyone to have the chance to do that, and do it safely.

A link to the BSA Swim Test requirements can be found here.

Car Wash Rescheduled

Due to rain that’s currently falling and is supposed to last all day, we are going to reschedule the car wash that Brendan had set up for today.  Keep your eyes open for the rescheduled date once we have that settled.

Thanks & stay dry, Troop 246!
