Aquatics is the best way to cool off in the warm summer sun. Aside from the seven merit badges offered at Aquatics, Scouts can swim for fun and enjoy belly flops or dives off the raft. If you are not a strong swimmer, the staff at aquatics are committed to helping you learn to swim. The more advanced swimmer can challenge themselves with Lifesaving merit badge and even work on Safe Swim Defense or Paddle Craft Safety certifications. We also gear all our instruction and activities to be fun and make all scouts feel comfortable, and confident in the water.
Kayaking, Canoeing, Rowing, and sailing are fun ways to explore the beautiful lake Killian.
A popular event for troops to participate in is the war canoe races. Each week troops compete against each other to determine the camp champion in these ten man boat races. At the end of the week the East Camp champion battles the West Camp champion for the prestigious Killian Cup.
