Kayak Merit Badge Event
Kayaking like you've never seen and won't soon forget! Join us September 9th for a day on the water with the Qajaq USA Organization. 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 for your GPS: 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. 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 and health form, you must have both to participate.
