We love hosting Scouting Groups many of us are Scouts ourselves! Scouts are always welcome on any adventure, but here is an example of a popular choice:
1-Day Kayaking Merit Badge Trip
This day trip with classroom time will prepare prepare Scouts for their initial kayaking experience by introducing the skills and equipment required, with an emphasis on safety and self-protection. Includes:
While large rapids of Class III and above are typically only found during floods the water still contains risks some hidden even at normal heights. Strainers which like their name only allow water to pass through and are a risk. Each trip is rated from "Easy Peazy" to eat your "Wheaties" When choosing a trip remember to stay in your lane and if in doubt "Scout it Out".
"Easy Peazy" Predominately Flat Water with some small rapids Class 1 or lower. Beginner trips are less than 10 miles in length. Easy access to emergency aid.
Small Rapids Class I to Class II depending on water height narrow passages, twists and turns and a trip length of 10 or more miles. Limited emergency access.
Eat your "Wheaties" These are full day trips covering 10+ miles. Home to some of the remote sections of the water often having extremely limited emergency access. Multi-Activity and trips designed to challenge you both physically and mentally.
