August Kayaking Campout August 27-29

Posted by pharris on Jul 19 2021 - 2:53pm

 

The troop will be camping at Wild Goose Kayak near Broken Bow Oklahoma about 3 hour drive from Coppell. 

We will depart CBF at 5:30 Friday August 27 and return afternoon on August 29th

Our Kayaking trip begins Saturday morning around 10:30 AM, we will be Kayaking 8 miles down river on the lower Mountain Fork River through some great class 2 rapids and beautiful scenery. We will stop for lunch about mid way and arrive back at Wild Goose sometime in the late afternoon. I highly recommend that our first year scouts (Longhorns) have a parent accompany them in the tandem kayak, older scouts will be allowed to use single man kayaks. 

Cost is $65.00 per person, this cost is based on food, fuel to pull trailers, Kayak rental etc.

PLEASE SIGN UP BY AUGUST 11TH SO WE CAN PROVIDE THE OUTFITTER WITH AN ACCURATE HEAD COUNT TO RESERVE THE KAYAKS.

We will make reservations on August 12 and we will not be allowed to add to or subtract from this reservation. Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
