Swim Test

A rite of passage for every boy at scout camp; it can be very stressful for an 11 year old boy to take. You jump into a pool and have to swim 75 yards on your stomach and then 25 yards on your back. After doing that you have to show you can float.

That may not sound like a lot of swimming. But for an 11 year old, that is a lot of pressure. Troop 5 has a tradition on cheering on their boys as they do the swim test. It seems to help.

For those that were worried I passed mine and so did the 11 year old.
