Scouts and Jetskis?

Posted on 28 May 2009 by Dan


BSA Personal WatercraftClaytor Lake Adventure Base at the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation has exclusive permission from the National Council Boy Scouts of America to pilot a Personal Watercraft Program for Boy Scouts and Venturers.

This is the ONLY program in the Country where use of personal watercrafts are permitted as a part of any Scouting Program!

According to Blue Ridge Mountains Council, participants will learn all about Jet Skis, how to be safe on the water, and of course, have a blast riding Jet Skis on Claytor Lake! At the end of the course particiants will have earned their Virgina Boater’s License.

Visit the Blue Ridge Mountain Council Website for more information.

What do you think? Good Idea? Bad Idea? Will it become an approved program?
