The aquatics committee has overall responsibility for the local council’s aquatics activities in Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring. Within the local council organization, the aquatics committee reports to either the vice president of program or to the vice president of health and safety. The aquatics committee may be a separate committee or subcommittee within the program or health and safety committee.

Members of the aquatics committee should either be experienced Scouters with a background in aquatics or aquatics specialists interested in becoming involved in the Scouting program. The committee should include at least one individual with a current National Camping School Aquatics Instructor, BSA training card.

In addition to swimming and water-rescue specialists, the committee should include specialists for the type of aquatics activities prevalent in the local council (e.g., snorkeling/scuba, canoe tripping, sailing, whitewater, crew rowing, waterskiing, Sea Scouts, etc.). Select committee members should either be members of or liaisons to other council committees that touch the aquatics committee’s areas of responsibility, including training, advancement, health and safety, camping, etc.

Summer camp aquatics directors should be ex-officio members of the committee during the term of their employment and afterward encouraged to become full-time, year-round volunteer members.

The aquatics committee’s main responsibilities include year-round activities tailored to the local council’s aquatic activities and opportunities.
