Sat Jun 03, 9:00 AM - Sun Jun 04, 5:00 PM CDT
Camp Wah-Shah-She
Junior, Cadette, Senior, Ambassador
The Introduction to Canoe course for girls is the first step for advanced canoeing activities and courses on rivers and lakes and is taught by ACA Certified Instructors. This course is for Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors. Discover a great new skill by spending the weekend learning basic information on boat control, paddling apparel, potential hazards and simple rescues. An entry level of paddling skills is presented and practiced, allowing you to safely and effectively maneuver on flat-water. This session includes an overnight stay.  

After the registration deadline you will receive a permission slip and a list of items to bring.
  • This is an individual event, not a troop activity.

Prerequisite: Participants must be in good physical condition and be able to tread water and swim in water over their heads.

At least one female adult (with a current Volunteer Application and Background Check on file with the GS office) will be needed to help with meal preparation and overnight ratio for this activity. Please email to volunteer.
