The weekend aquatics program is designed to provide full day aquatics fun for Scouts and their families using our private beach and paddle equipment.
Units plan their own full-day programs. After a brief safety overview, unit leaders are responsible for overseeing self-guided activities in and around Alamitos Bay in the Long Beach Marina using our private beach and equipment.
