Pine Barrens Day Canoeing 18th June 2016

Let's go CANOEING!

Saturday 18 June in Wharton State Forest (the New Jersey Pine Barrens).

We'll leave on Saturday morning at 7:30AM from St. John's, drive to Mick's Canoe Rental, and immediately canoe for three to five hours on the Wading River (between 6 and 10 miles).  The river is very gentle here (in fact, so shallow in parts that you may be "wading") and no significant canoeing experience is required.  We will, however, go over some canoeing instruction and SAFETY at the troop meeting on June 17th.  At the end of the day we'll head back home, arriving about 5PM at St. John's.

There is a cost of $25/Scout for this trip due to the cost of renting canoes. No special gear is required (the canoe outfitters supply us with everything).  

Meals: Eat breakfast before you leave on Saturday and bring a bag lunch for Saturday.  We may stop for a snack on the way home so bring a few dollars.
