The weekend aquatics program is designed to provide fun aquatic opportunities for Scouts and their families.
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.
Note: This is not a merit badge class.
This program is offered any weekend throughout the year on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations required and can be made through this reservation form here or the Scout Service Center (562) 427-0911.
