BSA Swim Classification Testing Dates & Sign Up

Posted on Jun 27 2017 - 4:12pm

A BSA swim classification test is required for each scout AND parents attending Tomahawk summer camp. Andrew Accola (Senior Coordinator of Lifeguard and Safety at the Woodbury YMCA) has graciously agreed to offer the following testing sessions so that Troop 5 can complete their BSA swim tests before going to Tomahawk.
Tuesday, June 27th @ 7:00 PM
Thursday, June 29th @ 7:00 PM
Saturday, July 1st @ 12:30 PM
Each session is limited to a maximum of 20 people. Please sign up on the Troop Website to make sure we don't overload any of these sessions.
Simply go to the Woodbury YMCA a few minutes before the scheduled test time with your swim suit and towel. When you arrive at the YMCA go to the front desk, Adults show photo ID, inform front desk that you are with Woodbury Scouts for swim test with Andrew, they will direct you to the changing rooms and pool area. Andrew will take your name and add it to a BSA Swim Classification Form that I will collect from him after all the testing is done.  For more information on the process, please see the description on the attached form.

Marcus Anderson's Eagle Project

Posted on Jun 5 2017 - 9:12am

I am doing my Eagle Scout project, which is an app development for the high school of Hill Murray. I will need about 3 scouts to help with the project. Your help will be in meetings to understand what is needed for the app and to help test the app. We will have professional programmer help with this project, and we will hopefully get some chances to learn and do some programming ourselves.

I am hoping each scout that helps will be able to be at 2 to 4 meetings during the project. Each meeting should last about 1-2 hours. The meetings will be at Hill Murray, and either before school or after school. The meetings will be over the course of the next couple months and are not at specific dates. I will try to schedule meetings about a week in advance. Please email me at (marcus.anderson@hmstudents.org) if you are interested in participating in this Eagle project.

Thank you,
Marcus Anderson
