Mile Swim BSA

This session provides Scouts and adult leaders with an opportunity to exercise through recreational lap swimming. Camp Raven Knob's dock system includes eight 25-yard lap lanes in an enclosed swimming area.

Participants who complete specific training swims on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will be invited to participate in an open-water mile swim on Thursday. As per national policy, only participants who attend all required training swims will be allowed to swim the open-water mile.

Leaders may earn part of their Scoutmaster Merit Badge by volunteering to help supervise the swim by rowing across the lake on Thursday.
