Many Point Swim Test Scheduled

A time for the pre-camp swim test has been scheduled for Friday, June 20th @ 7:00 a.m. at the GSL High School Pool.
This testing is for cub scouts, boy scouts and adults who will be attending summer scout camp.  The pre-camp swim test is not mandatory, but does simplify things on arrival to camp.  If you cannot make this event, do not worry, we’ll get you through the testing at camp.
Please arrive between 7:00 and 7:30 and enter through the Field House entrance.  Proceed left (east) into the high school until you come to the appropriate locker room on your right.  Once in your swim suit you may enter the pool area from the locker room showers.   We’ll be standing by to help you with the testing.    Testing will be “first come, first served” and should take about 10 minutes.  We’ll try to get you in and out as quickly as possible.
