Canoeing merit badge session
Sunday, December 14, 2014
Sign up with Mr. Shiller
Learn the parts of the canoe and the paddle, and what to do with them. Canoeing
Merit Badge will be taught by a Merit Badge counselor in the quiet waters of Fiesta Island
at the Youth Aquatic Center. If you read the merit badge book, you can easily
learn the most important paddling strokes, and then practice paddling solo, and
with a partner. If the wind stays calm to one or two o’clock in the afternoon,
there will be plenty of time to earn the merit badge.
Canoeing MB is a prerequisite for the Salty Rat, the Spring Break canoe trip, and
Anyone else who wants to practice their canoe paddling technique is welcome to
come, subject to availability of canoes (those Scouts working on the merit badge
get first priority).
PREREQUISITE: Parent permission, and ability to swim (Swimming MB, or swim test at summer
camp, Junior Life Guards, etc.).
