May is Aquatics

posted May 7, 2014, 1:24 PM by Keith Biegert   [ updated May 7, 2014, 1:26 PM ]
The annual Aquatics Trip is scheduled for Friday, 5/30/14 through Sunday, 6/1/14.  I am the campmaster for this event.  This  year is will be held at Camp Durant and we will be using all the waterfront equipment that we normally have access to at summer camp- sailboats, canoes, rowboats, etc.  We also plan to have the swimming area open as well, if we have enough supervision available from adults and older scouts qualified with lifesaving merit badge or BSA lifeguard.
 
Who:  Scouts, Leaders, and parents are invited- we need drivers and extra adults to serve as waterfront lookouts and lifeguards.  Adults, please let me know as early as possible if you intend to participate and if there is someone who is willing to pull the trailer.  Also need an adult grubmaster.
What: Fun on the Water at Camp Durant.
Where:  Camp Durant, Maple Campsite and Waterfront Area.  There is a map and directions attached to this email.
When:  See schedule below.
Why:  To have fun!
Cost: To be Determined (should be low, if any) + Grub Fees.
