BSA Lifesaving Merit Badge

Friday, July 19, 2019

Scouts must be able to pass the Lifesaving Swim Test, which is a 400-yard continuous swim which must be completed in a strong manner. Scouts who do not complete this test will have the option of receiving a refund or credit (subject to a $5 processing fee) or remaining in the class (no refund or credit will be given). If a Scout remains in the class but does not complete the Lifesaving Swim Test, they cannot earn any other requirements. Parents/Leaders are asked to remain for at least the first 20 minutes of class in case a Scout does not complete the Lifesaving Swim Test. Meets requirements for BSA Lifesaving Merit Badge with the exception of CPR. Participants must be 11 years old and be able to satisfactorily complete all skills and take the CPR for Scouts class in order to pass off merit badge. Scouts must bring a signed Merit Badge Application (blue card) to this class.
