The swim classification of individuals participating in water activities is a key element of the BSA’s Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat. Swim classification tests (swim checks) should be renewed annually at the beginning of the outdoor season and are required for any Scout attending Scouts BSA Summer Camp, Webelos Akela Adventure Camp and any swim activity at Day Camp. In addition this may be an advancement requirement for your scout, please check your scout’s rank requirements to know if he will require a swim test prior to summer 2022 to advance. The Alamo Area Council offers swim lessons to Scouts (ages 6+) as well as swim checks.
Cost: $75/week; each 45-minute session is limited to 20 swimmers
