Hello Troop 3 and welcome back to an amazing year of scouting! We will have a weekend canoe trip down the Kankakee River in Kankakee, IL. This will be 4-6 hours of canoeing down the river.
Dates: September 21-23 / 2018
AIC: Nick Wallin (previously was PM)
Location: Kankakee River State Oark, IL

Canooeing: the Troup will rent canoes at Reeds canoe trips. From Reed's website: "The first half of the 12-mile stretch from Momence to Aroma Park is studded with numerous small island and meanders through narrow channels, providing a very scenic trip. Numerous sandbars along the way are inviting spots for swimming breaks. Average padding time is 4 to 6 hours"https://www.reedscanoetrips.com/trips.
What to bring: sunscreen, hat, clothes that can get wet (including shoes that can get wet), change of clothes (for after canoe ride), water bottle.
Please signup before September 15, 2018, but the earlier the better.
