Swimming Merit Badge

Posted on May 11 2015 - 10:56pm

For those interested in the Swimming Merit Badge, I am planning to have the class on May 31 at 1 pm.  This is useful for meeting the Eagle requirements. You should review the merit badge booklet and questions on the Boy Scout Merit Badge web site and complete as many as you can.  You should also practice your stokes, as it is unlikely you will pass the requirements unless you know them.  You should bring your Blue card signed by a UL, a towel, and pair of long pants and shirt with a high neck for the survival exercises.  It is easier to use a pair of nylon warm-up pants that you can tie a knot in rather than jeans.
