Enroll in one of the swimming levels based on skills.
This is the beginning level for school-age children. It gets children acquainted with the pool, comfortable in the water, introduces the use of flotation devices, and floating. By the end of this level they are introduced to front crawl stroke, side and backstroke. Children have more confidence by the end of this level and should feel comfortable blowing bubbles with their face in the water.
Children in this level are able to swim at least 20 feet on front, back, and side. They continue to work on developing front crawl, sidestroke and backstroke. They are introduced to the breast-stroke, and elementary backstroke. Children can swim a length of the pool without assistance at the end of this level.
For children able to swim independently for a distance of 25 yards with the following strokes: front crawl with side breathing, basic elementary backstroke, back crawl with straight arms, and rudimentary sidestroke and breaststroke. Water safety skills are also emphasized, along with water polo sportsmanship, boating safety, and rescue skills.
In this level, students swim full laps of the strokes learned so far. Stroke mechanics are refined for a more efficient stroke. Students will build endurance as they work on swimming 4 lengths of breaststroke, front crawl stroke and backstroke continuously. Students are challenged to swim one length of butterfly. This class is ideal for those preparing for swim team or just looking to become a effective swimmer for fitness or fun.
Through experiential learning guided by a knowledgeable adult, youth will learn the safe and responsible use of BB guns, slingshots, and archery equipment. The goal is for youth to have fun in a safe environment!
Activities may include:
– Sling Shots
– BB Guns
As youth participate in shooting sports activities and work toward an award, they not only build confidence in their abilities, but also develop self-reliance, sportsmanship, and conservation awareness—all elements of good character valued in Scouting.
Robotics levels will be split by age. Younger groups will learn the beginning of robotics using Lego and smaller machines. Older groups will learn the how to create their own robotics and see what it takes to compete in robotic fights.
Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) will provide participants adventure and learning throughout the week. There will be different activities throughout the week of this
adventure where the focus will be on using STEM techniques to better understand the world around them.
Participants will learn how to care for a variety of animals. Working with a near by ranch and local Zoo, participants will have the ability to ask questions and while discovering new and interesting facts about local and exotic animals.
