In order to earn this merit badge, you must already have your Kayaking Merit Badge.  They can give you a partial if you do not have it.  This is a unique merit badge that runs from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.  Please note driving times are 2:15 hrs.

This full-day program completes the Whitewater Merit Badge using our inflatable kayaks. The morning session includes discussion, instruction and on-water practice paddling the kayaks through specific maneuvers and rescue drills. The afternoon is an eight-mile paddle down a Class I-II section of the Deerfield in our "Funyaks". The cost is $35pp for the Funyak trip plus $25pp for the morning session.

Bring your own lunch or add lunch for $8pp.

Pre-requisite: Kayaking merit badge, although we will do "partials".
