Description:

“Almost Heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River” sound familiar? Are you ready for an exciting and adventurous canoe trip down the Shenandoah River? Join us for a two-day outing where you will learn paddling skills, river safety, camping techniques, and more. You will also enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife of one of America’s most historic rivers.

We will depart on Friday evening at 6 PM from Rosa Lee Carter and drive to Front Royal and camp at Low Water Bridge Campground. We will rent canoes from Front Royal River Company where they will provide us with all the necessary equipment, transportation up river, and provide instruction.

Scouts will launch canoes 7 miles upstream and paddle 3-4 hours down the Shenandoah River starting at Burners Ford to Bentonville. Along the way, we will encounter some small rapids, eddies, and bends that will test our skills and teamwork. This adventure will cost $70 per person.
