Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School  - last and final call. 

Information has been sent out. Please send an email to Eric Kravchenko if you are interested in going. 


Information about the school is here  https://www.mkc.ca/  This should be a really cool trip. Siblings that are not in scouting are welcome. Cost will be from $900 to $1100 - this is for a 5 day trip so a very good value. The goal of the 5 day course is to learn to Eskimo roll, Read a whitewater rapid, learn paddling safety, technique and rescue. We will get to run rapids.
