Moving Water Overnight (and New Scout Campout)
Welcome Webelos, scouts, and other related creatures: it's time to go canoeing on the mighty Huron river! Your canoeing skills will be tested against moving water, raging kayakers, college kids with water-guns and some unintentional swimming. Moving water will be a lot easier then flatwater because the water will be pushing you along (Unless we make you paddle upriver mwah haw haw haw)
For this trip you will need gear for weekend camping. This basically means that you need a bowl and eating utensils, a sleeping bag and pad, clothes including weather-appropriate clothing for the river. THIS MEANS NO COTTON CLOTHES. Cotton when wet doesn't provide insulation and will ruin your trip. You won't need any cook gear or food because it will be provided for you.
To come on this trip you need to have come on the flatwater day or 3 of the meetings.
