A mother asks ” I understand that I cant do his next advancements until after May graduation BUT can I keep doing electives and getting credit for them?”
Webelos/AOL Elective Adventure: Aquanaut
The new Cub Scout program introduces the SCOUT water safety chant. This helps younger Scouts learn the rules for safe aquatics activities.
For the Aquanaut adventure, Webelos learn about safety in the water while swimming and boating and practice their aquatics skills.
Safe Swim Defense provides the steps which a BSA unit must take to safely participate in an activity which involves swimming.
Since I am focusing on an aquatics theme this month, I thought I’d post about water rescue methods. These are methods used to rescue someone who is in trouble in the water. You will see these methods throughout the BSA programs from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts to Venturing.
The BSA swim test is used to determine ability level so that participants can swim in an area which is appropriate for them.
Before embarking on a boating activity with your scouts, make sure everyone is aware of the Safety Afloat guidelines.
