Important notes

Each Scout must bring:

  • 1 Gallon of water at least - label your water jugs
  • LOTS of sunscreen
  • Water shoes
  • Swimsuit and towel
  • Hats
  • Sun Glasses / optional
  • Swim shirt
  • Scouts plan for Saturday breakfast and lunch and Sunday breakfast

This is considered HEAVY Camping.  Our primary mission is water activities and the Waterskiing Merit Badge; therefore, we will not hike in.
