Drayson Center in Loma Linda
This event is held annually to certify that teen leaders and staff are competent swimmers and are ready for the river trip. A WSI (water safety instructor) will have the teens and staff go through a series of swimming skills. This requirement must be completed to be allowed in the canoes and on the water. This can also be done through your local Red Cross or YMCA. Once you have passed the requirements, you do not need to do it again. It's just like earning an honor. A copy of the certification must be filed and maintained at the Youth Ministries office.
Open to Pathfinder staff, acting or invested teen leaders.
The club director or secretary needs to submit the online registration form fifteen days before the event. Deadline is Monday, January 14. You MUST register the club and those needing to be swim checked. After the registration deadline, the director will be contacted as to the scheduled arrival time. Each club is allotted a certain amount of time to complete the swim check, so be prompt and ready to get into the pool. Once you arrive, you will need to confirm your attendees at the registration area.
The cost is $6.50 per person and can be paid onsite (exact change required) or billed to the church.
