We recommend your unit make every effort to complete your swim classification test before your arrival in camp.
OPTION A (At unit Level with approved aquatics resource people): The swim classification test completed at a unit level must be conducted by an individual with at least one of the following certifications: Aquatics Instructor, BSA; Aquatics Supervisor, BSA Lifeguard; certified lifeguard; swimming instructor; or swim coach. When the unit goes to a summer camp, each individual will be issued an official buddy tag under the direction of the Camp Aquatics Director for use at the camp.
OPTION B (at camp): The swim classification test is completed the first day of camp by camp Aquatics personnel.

“Resica Falls has partnered with a food service management company to provide Scouts and Scouters with a well-balanced and nutritious meal plan – approved by a certified dietitian – for the duration of their stay in camp, beginning with dinner on Sunday. Each meal includes a hot entrée with at least one side; lunch and dinner also include a vegetable. There is a fruit and yogurt bar available at breakfast, and a salad bar at both lunch and dinner, along with daily specialty salad bars at lunch. Peanut butter and jelly with multiple types of bread are also available at both lunch and dinner. Hot and cold drinks are available at twin juice bars located on either side of the dining hall.
“Campers and adult leaders with dietary restrictions can note their individual restrictions with the camp’s food service manager before they come to camp via the form below. We are more than happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions to ensure that campers and leaders have the best dining experience possible.”
