Summer Camp !!

Sign up for Summer Camp at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch is open now, and is almost full, so if you want to attend, get signed up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

See Mr. Polk for more details, and check out the photo album on the Yahoo Groups site 

Swim Tests

ALL BSA members that want to participate in any water related activities, including swimming, canoeing, kayaking, blobs etc MUST pass a BSA Swim Test every year. 

This is especially important with Galveston Island watersports campout and SR2 Summer Camp coming up. 

SR2 in June is going to be hot and dusty - you will be wanting to get in the lake or the pool every chance you get, and you won't be able to if you don't get a BSA Swimmer Rating! 

We have 3 dates available on the online sign-up. There is a limit to the number of swimmers we can certify at each date, so reserve your space early, and get practicing!

Click here to link to details of the swim test dates, or see Mr. Moore for more details.
