Learning the Tricks of the Trade

Today us campers went for a fun filled and informational canoening adventure!!
Initially our teacher and guide filled us in about the different types of life jackets. Did you know..?
There are 5 different types of PDF's aka personal floatation devices..aka life jackets.

After our quick lesson about the PDF's we moved onto the proper way to enter and exit a canoe, different stokes used when in a canoe, and last but not least how to function and maneuver when in a canoe.

When we finally got in the water the whole group followed our guide around some buoys and different obstacles. Lets just say we weren't the most experienced group of canoers.

the canoe lessons are kind of boring... it gets better when you get into the water!!!
