Pool Party & Swim Test June 3rd.

Posted on May 20 2019 - 2:24pm

Scouting families, we will be conducting the swim tests for all Scouts that will be going to June Campout (Lake Norman) OR Summer Camp this year, on Monday, June 3rd at the Oak Ridge Swim Club. All Scouts going to Summer Camp must have the swim test completed before arriving at Raven Knob. We will have the picnic area at the back of the pool reserved from 6pm-8pm. The cost for this test will be $7 for all non-members of ORSC and $2 for all members. The boys are welcome to swim in the pool after they take their swim test. A signup will be sent out for snacks and drinks in the next couple days. This info is being sent to the Troop and the Pack as both have Scouts going to Raven Knob this year. Please let me know if you have any questions.
