We will be using a mix of double canoes (aka "Canadians") and single kayaks, if your Group has it's own (must have a current Scouts SA registration), then please organise with them or let Paul know if you'll be needing to hire a double canoe from Roonka ($32) or a single touring kayak from the Canoe Team ($20).
Refer the Y4 form and Greg Walker's Kayaking Checklist (both available via the link below), for what to bring both personally and as a team, e.g. shared equipment/supplies with your paddling partner inc. food, water, tent, stove etc.
Venturers can use this activity for their Award Scheme, with enough hours for VA Outdoors or could be part of a QSA Outdoors plan, both would require Unit Council pre-approval and contact with Paddle Venture organisers.
