Gentlemen (and ladies):
"... so why
penalise a kid who is afraid of swimming ??
We never "penalize" a Scout from the BSA Program. We work with him.
Now, if you are referring to Rank Advancement, their are no waivers (except documented permantent medical ones).
Every Scout a Swimmer. There are no shortcuts to this one. A genuine fear is one to be worked through.
And he has until he is 18 years old.
Let's be very clear about Medical Diabilities vs. Fears.
I fear bears, but Philmont is still a blast.
