Aquatics

The Camp Buck Toms aquatic program – based in our own private cove off Watts Bar Lake – is one of the finest in Scouting.

STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING is also available. This is a more difficult skill than canoeing and is recommended for older and stronger Scouts, who will learn the proper skills and safety precautions for this exciting sport. This is not a merit badge but a BSA program award.

PLEASE NOTE: All campers must take the BSA swimming test before engaging in any aquatics activities at camp.
