Swimming Classifications


Every Scout will be asked to take a swim test in order to show his current swimming skill.  While swim tests will be offered soon after arrival, your troop may find it convenient to perform swim tests prior to camp.  Camp Friedlander will accept pre-camp swim classification tests conducted by qualified aquatics instructors.  The Camp Aquatics Director reserves the right to retest all participants to assure that swim standards have been met.

Qualified aquatics instructors include:

  • Aquatics Instructor, BSA
  • BSA Lifeguard
  • BSA National Camp School Aquatics Supervisor
  • Aquatics Cub Supervisor
  • BSA Swimming & Water Rescue
  • American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor
  • School Swim Coach
