    New Kayak and Boating Requirements?

    Thanks. I think I've beaten this dead horse. Appreciate the information.

    My "attitude" scares you? I asked a simple question about aquatic activities and expressed an opinion supported by facts that we live in a highly litigious society. I was bemoaning this fact, not proposing ignoring Scouting rules You should avoid making judgments about people you know nothing about, mate.

    That's a bit rude and uncalled for, qwazse, smiley face or not. As an Eagle Scout, I can tell you from my experience we did this kind of thing all the time without these types of requirements when I was active in Scouting. Unfortunately, because of outlier incidents in which kids have been hurt, and by the emergence of a highly litigious culture, we have become a society that is trying to safety proof everything. This is one more example of it. But thanks anyways for the info.

    I know what I'm doing. It appears, however, that Scouts are lawsuit shy. No problem. We'll do something else.

    OK, related topic - we're going camping on an island and there's a beach. No playing in the waves without swim tests...?
  6. Hey there. Quick question - With the new changes that came along in 2017, what are the requirements for a Pack to conduct activities like boating and kayaking? Must all Cub Scouts who want to participate take and pass the swim test? Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
