We worked on the aquanaut activity pin during 5 days of day camp. Below is the information for day 4.
- Personal flotation devices: 1 per boy
- Diving toys (various)
Requirements covered and activities for each requirement
Note: Leader: demonstrate each of these skills. However, your role is to facilitate their practice (not to teach)
Aquanaut 3. Put on a personal floatation device (PFD) that is the right size for you. Make sure it is properly fastened. Wearing the PFD, jump into water over your head. Show how the PFD keeps your head above water by swimming 25 feet. Get out of the water, remove the PFD, and hang it where it will dry.
- Everyone should practice multiple times
Swimming Belt loop 2: Play a recreational game in the water with your den, pack, or family.
- Play a game with the diving rings
- Play a game from the aquanaut game list
- Start: This worked really well.
- Stop: Nothing to stop. It went well.
- Continue: This worked well. We did our best to include the scouts who had not passed the full swim test but they can only practice the skills in the BSA approved area of the swimming pool so some of the practice had to be modified.
