The Legacy
October 17-19, 2014
Camp Barstow SC
Welcome to Year Two of The Legacy!
Last year we had such an amazing event we decided that we wanted to do it
again! The Legacy is an annual Venturing Weekend for Area 5 to be held at Camp
Barstow in Batesburg-Leesville, SC this year. All councils are welcome to
participate in The Legacy, and with this event we hope to:
1. Continue to promote Venturing and Sea Scouting.
2. Serve as an idea sharing and support community
3. Offer fellowship and fun through various activities
4. To give purpose to Venturing Officers Associations throughout Area 5.
Our Ranges will be open to test your marksmanship and our beautiful Lake
Murray will be filled so you can work on your
watercraft skills. We will also have numerous
presentations by organizations from around the area
and, of course. the Barstow Challenge, our 4-part
timed team challenge!

breakfast on Sunday.
Note Dinner will not be offered Friday night but we will have a Cracker Barrel later after check-in has
been completed.
We expect the weather to be pleasant during your stay at Camp Barstow, but adverse weather
conditions can occur. Please plan accordingly by checking the weather forecasts a month out, two
weeks out, a week out, and the day you plan to depart. Generally, October tends to be comfortable
enough for shorts and t shirts, but don’t be surprised if a cold snap comes through. Being on a lake we
find the nights can turn chilly quickly so keep that in mind as you pack your camping gear. Closed Shoes
(No Crocs or Keens) are required throughout camp unless you are participating in our boating activities.

No cars will be allowed in camp. We have two designated parking areas at Camp Barstow and those are
the only two places where cars will be allowed. Please prepare to hike your gear to your campsite.
Crews/Posts/Ships with gear trailers will be escorted to their campsite to drop off their trailer and then
return their vehicle immediately to the parking lot.
Camp Barstow will be happy to make accommodations for Scouts or Scouters with disabilities but they
must declare their need to Camp Administration (Contact info located later in this Leaders Guide) at
least 1 week before the event.
Door Prizes:
Last year Councils and Crews were encouraged to bring door prizes (patches, gear, cool stuff) from their
home councils to be given away as door prizes during the Campfire Saturday night. Please try to bring
something to share from your area!
Camp Barstow has open faced Adirondacks in every campsite that will only be available to Registered
Adults IF you provide your own 8X10 tarp and rope/twine to cover the four person bays. We will not
provide tarps for this purpose.
All youth will be tent camping! Make sure to pack your own tent. Camp Barstow does not keep up their
canvas tents up year round so please make sure that every youth has a buddy and an appropriate place
to sleep. Hammocks are welcome to hang on trees only and space is limited. Be prepared - if you bring
a hammock, have a tent as backup.
Camp Barstow is primed for wildlife. Be prepared to
see turkey, deer, rabbit, assorted shore and song
birds, skunks, snakes, turtles, and the occasional
Keep in mind that we advise all campers to NOT KEEP
FOOD OF ANY SORT in campsites. Our furry friends
are not bashful and will be happy to share in your
food stores if not stored properly.

Unit Swim Classification Record
This is the individual’s swim classification as of this date. Any change in status after this date
(i.e., nonswimmer to beginner or beginner to swimmer) would require a reclassification test
performed by an approved test administrator. Changes and corrections to the following chart
should be initialed and dated by the test administrator.
SPECIAL NOTE: When swim tests are conducted away from camp, the camp aquatics director
retains the right to review or retest any or all participants to ensure that standards have been

Revised: March 2009
The swim classification of individuals participating
in a Boy Scouts of America activity is a key
element in both Safe Swim Defense and Safety
Afloat. The swim classification tests should be
renewed annually, preferably at the beginning
of each outdoor season. Traditionally, the swim
classification test has only been conducted at a
long-term summer camp. However, there is no
restriction that this be the only place the test can
be conducted. It may be more useful to conduct
the swim classification prior to a unit going to
summer camp.
All persons participating in BSA aquatics are
classified according to swimming ability. The
classification tests and test procedures have been
developed and structured to demonstrate a skill
level consistent with the circumstances in which
the individual will be in the water (e.g., the
swimmer’s test demonstrates the minimum level
of swimming ability for recreational and
instructional activity in a confined body of water
with a maximum 12-foot depth).
OPTION A (at camp):
The swim classification test is completed the first day by camp aquatics personnel.
OPTION B (Council conducted/council controlled):
The council controls the swim classification process by predetermined dates, locations, and approved
personnel to serve as test administrators. When the unit goes to summer camp, each individual will be
issued a buddy tag under the direction of the camp aquatics director for use at the camp.
OPTION C (At unit level with council-approved aquatics resource people):
The swim classification test done at a unit level should be conducted by one of the following councilapproved resource people: Aquatics Instructor, BSA; Aquatics Cub Supervisor; BSA Lifeguard;
BSA Swimming & Water Rescue; or other lifeguard, swimming instructor, etc. When the unit goes
to summer camp, each individual will be issued a buddy tag under the direction of the camp aquatics
director for use at the camp.
The various components of each test evaluate the several skills essential to the minimum level of
swimming ability. Each step of the test is important and should be followed as listed below:
Jump feetfirst into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong
manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim
25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously and include at
least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating.
Jump feetfirst into water over the head in depth, level off, swim 25 feet on the surface, stop, turn sharply,
resume swimming as before, and return to starting place.
Updated map of
event s will be
available prior to
the event.
