MANDITORY POOL SESSION for Burlington Area Canoe Camp 2017 (event:11-3-825340068-4bf6ceac13371f7b)


This will be held on Sunday April 2, from 2:30pm to 7:30pm at Aldershot Community Pool (next to Aldershot High School at 50 Fairwood Place West). In order to cover all the requirements and competencies, we intend to do as much of the theory, water and canoe work in advance of the camp. This will allow us to spend as much time at Camp actually out on the water. Scouts should be prepared to learn, and have fun in the pool. The last half hour of the session will be for closing remarks and a PIZZA Snack (note: Pizza may be limited to those that pre-register)! We also expect to have some free-swimming time. Each participant must bring a properly fitting Personal Flotation Device (PFD), which is approved by Transport Canada. If you don’t have your own, or can’t borrow one, let a leader know and we will try to arrange one for you. Scouts will be wearing their PFD’s at all times at the pool. The information to be covered in the session is available in the Water Activities Manual (available at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1Ct5HKlCO40QlNFdXpKckl5LUU/view?usp=sharing) as well as in the Paddling Outdoor Adventure skills document at http://www.scoutinglife.ca/wp-content/uploads/oas/paddling-skills-en.pdf. Each participant should study these materials prior to the pool session.   ALL SCOUTS ATTENDING THE CANOE CAMP MUST ATTEND THE POOL SESSION.
