Kayaking Merit Badge Day
Kayaking like you've never seen and won't soon forget! Join us September 9th for a day on the water! Learn about Greenland style kayaking, meet world class kayakers and earn your kayaking merit badge with counselors, Chuck Rose and Bill Ness.
All this takes place at Parker Scout Camp, on North Long Lake, just west of Merrifield, MN. (address: 21930 Paradise Dr., Nisswa, MN)
Your day begins with check in at 9 am and ends with farewell at 4 pm. Kayaks, life jackets, and paddles will be available for use as supply permits - if you have it, bring it! You may bring your own sea kayak or use one of ours.
Be prepared with your swim check roster or current buddy tag from Scout camp, youth or adult waiver, and health form - you must have both to participate.
Please acquire and read through the Kayak Merit Badge pamphlet prior to the event. Bring it with you, along with a notebook, writing tool, and a blue card signed by your Scoutmaster.
Scouts who are 13-17 may participate. Leadership is required, adults may observe for free, or bring your own kayak and participate alongside the Scouts for $5. The fee for Scouts is $25 for the day and includes instruction, equipment, and facility. Please bring your own bag lunch.
Everyone, youth and adults, attending must have a health form, parts A and B. A safety waiver must be signed and presented by all attending, youth and adult, to participate in this unique experience. See attachments for copies.
There is a limit of 12 Scouts for this event, so register early! Join the paddlers and see first-hand what this amazing groups does!
This is a rain or shine event. There will be no refunds unless there is all day lightning and severe weather.
