Additional Information

The purpose of the Scout Canoe day is to provide scouts with an opportunity to learn and practice canoeing skills whilst having fun and achieving OAS competencies. On the day we will practicing how to fit a PFD properly, naming the different parts of a canoe, safely moving and getting in and out of canoes and different canoeing strokes. We will be canoeing around SWASH on Lane Cove river and Sydney Harbour, practicing swimming with our PFD’s on and playing games whilst paddling to practice our steering of the canoes. Youth members don’t need to have paddling experience to attend, however this day is not suitable for Joeys.
