One of our “Swim Up” Ceremonies As youth move up from one group to another, Scouting groups usually hold a ceremony to welcome youth to the next section in Scouting. On May 20, 2015 we held our “Swim Up” as we usually do, at Westboro Beach in Ottawa, along with Area Commissioner Steve Mihorean and Area Youth Commissioner Joschka Mcleod. It was windy but sunny and the youth seemed to have a great time! Enjoy. The 3rd Ottawa would like to thank Wayne Schaler for videotaping, editing, and providing this video.
