Personal Watercraft Pilot Update

BSA Personal Watercraft

Back in May, we informed readers about a Personal Watercraft Pilot program being held at Claytor Lake Adventure Base. The personal Watercraft Pilot at the Claytor Lake Adventure Base within the Blue Ridge Mountains Council in Roanoke, Virginia, has now completed three weeks of summer camp operations.

An initial requirement for participation in the PWC Pilot Program was successful completion of the Virginia Boater Safety Course. These Scouts are then assigned to other activities within the camp for the remainder of the week. No injuries have occurred thus far, and the camp is documenting all incidents and near misses, as required.

Approximately 120 Scouts have participated in the full program, and initial response appears to be very positive. Weekly e-mail surveys to program participants will be sent in an effort to collect detailed feedback regarding all aspects of the pilot.
