This is after dinner so we will have lemonade and water. If you can bring a snack to share that will be great! Just remember that we do have nut allergies in our Pack.
We will leave Sunday morning by 8:30.
Parents must stay with your scouts the entire time.
Please bring your sleeping bags, air mattresses, etc for an over nighter.
Also please bring a towel since we will be swimming from 7:30 – 9:30. We may break up into two groups or swim for the entire time depending on the amount of people.
For swimming, the YMCA asks that any kids under 7 must have a parent in the water with them.
The life guard will probably make all scouts do a brief swim test to see where they can go in the pool (deep-end or shallow)
As scouts, we ask the you help keep a 1:5 adult to scout ratio in watching around the pool while we are swimming.
We will have a movie showing later in one of the gyms as we settle down for the night and have some games and free time in the two gyms as well. If you have not signed up yet, feel free to email and we can add still.
