  3. that all depends on a lot of things. Job/experience/certs etc...
  4. Guys thanks so much! Everyone's ideas are magnificent! I can't wait for summer time so I can put all of this in action. I was thinking about half burying a treasure chest on the water front's beach with some gold coins and such! Everyone here is very helpful and keep the ideas coming!
  5. Good ideas! I wish we could have started the process sooner for hiring, but the council just hired the new Camp Director 2 weeks ago, so I had no clue what was going on! Things are rolling now, just looking to get the word out!
  6. AWESOME ideas guys! love 'em all! keep 'em coming!!

  8. Hi everyone! I am the Aquatics Director for a Cub Scout Camp in Bozrah, CT. I am in need of some ideas for a new year of camping. Recently we have decided to theme all of our areas of camp (Pirates - Waterfront, Cowboys - Fort, Huckfin - Rafts, Indians - Indian Village, Ninjas - Office) and I am in need of some ideas from everyone! My staff (except when we are actually lifeguarding) are going to be dressed up as Pirates, unless in class A or B uniforms.. which sounds fun. So dress is not a problem. Here is a list of issues I face... I want to make a sunken ship in the lake, wit
  9. Besides old books, I do not. My WSI will be getting renewed in June @ camp school. SO... hopefully they will have some good stuff there.
  10. Sorry if I came off as a little harsh! Typed out words are just typed out words! Hah...anyways. In terms of the mile swim that we offer the cubs at my camp, it really isn't something we follow as strictly as a BSA Camp would. It is offered more as something fun for the Cubs to do, as we also offer Polar Bear Swim. We do give out the BSA Mile Swim Patch, but by no means do I or previous directors follow the BSA Requirement #33215. As I said before, its just an extra little thing we like to do so the kids can have fun. I've even let beginners and learners in their respected area (im
  11. I have been involved in the camp for 12 years. So without a doubt, unless I have been in a dream for 12 years...CT Rivers Council Offers a Cub Scout Residential Camp. Tadma has always been 5 days 4 nights since it became a cub camp in the 1970s. Recently we inherited a day camp as well, so I run the aquatics program for them as well. We have been doing the BSA mile swim for years as well...and only a handful of kids come down to do it (usually around 5 Cubs, usually Web 2s, ultimately get the prized patch), don't under estimate the will of a 9 - 10 year old! During our program tim
  12. Hello Everyone! I am currently looking for some feedback. I am the Aquatics Director at a Residential Cub Camp in CT (CT Rivers' Camp Tadma), the reason for my post is to get some feedback from everybody! I would like to revamp the Aquatics Program at camp. I was last Aquatics Director 6 years ago and was asked by my council to come back this year. I remember my program ran something like this... Sunday - Test day ... nothing to change here Monday - Lessons Day ... give me some ideas about what I can do here guys. It was just typical every day Non-Swimmer, Beginner, & S
  13. Hi my name is Jon, been in scouting since I was 7. Still very active in Scouting...but not as deeply as I had been in years past. I am going back to working for a Cub Scout Residential Camp that I have been involved in for the last 12 years of my life (26 now). Can't wait for the summer!
