Kayaking Merit Badge

As Autumn solstice arrives, officially ending the 2017 Summer at 3:02PM Wisconsin time, we are proud to make an exciting announcement!


We kayak a lot! We mean A LOT! But everyone must start somewhere and first times for anything can be nerve racking! Whether you’re preparing for your first kayaking adventure or you just want to gain more experience on the water we are always happy to support you, and here is one more way we are doing so!

We are confirmed Boy Scouts of America Merit Badge Counselors for:

  • B.S.A. Kayaking Merit Badge
  • B.S.A. Stand-Up Paddle Board Award

Let us tell you, it took a considerable amount of paperwork, training, and planning, but it definitely is all worth it and we send a BIG THANK YOU to Bay-Lakes Council for their guidance in the process!
