As one can quickly tell, the pool is an important part of scout camp. Every year I try to set a goal for myself to do something different at scout camp. This year is to get up every morning and run and do the mile swim. We have not had many boys attempt the mile swim in the past and I was hoping that some would follow my lead.
It is a five day process. Each day you swim a longer distance until Friday when you finally do the mile. Monday was just a 100 yards. Seven boys and two leaders have committed to do the mile swim. Updates to follow.
