campers canoeing on lake


Canoeing is a classic outdoor skill. Using your own muscle power, you can propel a small, light boat across the water with surprising speed and control, carry many days worth of supplies while doing so and then if necessary, pick the boat up and carry it into a different body of water! In the canoeing activity, campers learn how to sit in a canoe, get in and out safely, paddle in the stern and bow of the boat and what to do if a canoe tips. It’s also a great way to explore our lake!
