Earn your Boy Scouts of America Kayaking Merit Badge
The kayakers has a certified Merit Badge Counselor. We can work with groups of scouts to help them earn a Boy Scout kayaking merit badge. The training will cover basic information about kayaks, strokes, and safety. The training session will have the scouts complete all of the BSA Kayaking requirements for the badge.
In this Boy Scout kayaking merit badge class you will get wet, NO Soaked! You will learn kayaking boat control, different kayaking rescue techniques, safety and much more. The Boy Scout kayaking merit badge class is about 5 hours long. So rest up, bring a snack and have fun at the same time.
The Kayakers can work with groups of between 2 to 8 scouts. If you are interested in scheduling a Boy Scout kayaking merit badge training session, please contact The Kayakers at 630-802-7647.
