Pathfinder Teen/Staff Swim Check-off 2019
Date Sunday, January 27, 2019 Where Drayson Center in Loma Linda Description This event is held annually to certify that teen leaders and staff are competent swimmers and are ready for the river trip. A WSI (water safety instructor) will have the teens and staff go through a series of swimming skills. Review the requirement sheet. These requirements must be completed to be allowed in the canoes and on the water. This can also be done through your local Red Cross or YMCA. Once you have passed the requirements, you do not need to do it again. It's just like earning an honor. A copy of the certification must be filed and maintained at the Youth Ministries office. Attendance Open to Pathfinder staff, acting or invested teen leaders, and teens enrolled in the Teen Leadership Training. Must be working on Ranger class or above.
