The BAC will be hosting the next Aquatics Training for Adult Leaders on June 15th 8am-5pm.


When a BSA scouting unit plains an aquatic activity (swimming, canoeing, kayaking, white-water rafting, tubing, etc.) without a responsible outfitter or at non-BSA sites, it is strongly recommended that a person from that unit age 21 or older holds a valid Paddle Craft Safety and Swimming and Water Rescue Certifications.  This training helps you obtain both these Certifications.

Additional information and directions will be provided on registration.

  • Boating clothes & water shoes
  • A change of clothes: you will get wet
