It was brought to our attention that many of our Scouts were unable to complete their annual Swim Test this summer. Scouts take the swim test in preparation for attending summer camp or they complete it at summer camp each year and this test counts when they are moving towards advancing to the next rank. This year, with many of our Scouts not attending camp due to cancellations or COVID restrictions many have realized that they need a swim test in order to advance or complete a Cub Scout Elective.
For this reason, we are adding three opportunities for swim tests to be completed at McGimsey Scout Park Pool.
These are open to the first 50 Scouts that sign up to attend and are not open to walk ins due to the precautions we must take during COVID. You will arrive at 4:30 pm for your session, park outside the pool, and check in. All attending are required to wear a mask (except while swimming) and practice social distancing. You will come dressed to swim as changing rooms are not open at this time. You will then be asked to wait in your vehicles until you are called up to take your test as we are only allowed to let so many into the pool area at one time. We will move everyone through as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience.

These will be the only opportunities to complete a swim test at McGimsey Scout Park this Fall as the pool closes at the end of September. We will reopen the pool in May 2021.
