Outback Adventurers are Cub Scouts entering fifth grade in the Fall of 2020. They can choose to attend as a Scout/Parent team (parents accompany Scouts to all activities) or as a Patrol (1 Scout and 1 Parent/ 2-4 Scouts and 2 adults/ 5-8 Scouts and 3 adults/ 9-12 Scouts and 4 adults). This experience will include the basics of canoe safety, safeswim defense, safety afloat, Leave No Trace Awareness, setting up camp, and introductory Scout skills. Participants will cook at least three meals with food and equipment provided by Lanier Canoe Base. Scouts and adults who have passed the Scout swim test will canoe to the Canoe Base site while non-swimmers and beginning swimmers will be transported to the patrol site by boat. All equipment will be transported to the site for you, so minimal gear is required. Showers are not available at the Canoe Base site; however, port-o-potties will be available. Scouts sleep in tents they bring.
