Greetings Aquatics Enthusiasts!

GEC wants to make sure that every scout and adult has the ability to have the best on the water experiance they can and to do so safely!

The Aquatics Committee is in place to try an achieve that goal. As such we are asking that anyone with water saftey skills let us know so that we can combine our efforts to give everyone and opportunity to safely play on the water.  Lifeguards, lookouts, instructors, and general support staff are just a few of the spots where you could volunteer.  Please contact Michael Sullivan at if you can help. 

Registration for any open events will be on the GEC website. 

Thank you!
