A Day on the Lake

Dec 29, 2020

A Day on the Lake


This cohort will provide Arrowmen with the opportunity to spend the day having fun and relaxing on Lake Katherine. They will spend their time enjoying various boating activities such as sailing, kayaking, canoeing, and stand up paddleboarding.


Specific Programming

Participants will travel to five round robin stations of different boating activities. They will spend roughly thirty minutes at each station.


Within each station, participants will be taught the basics of how to use the boat and paddles and will then spend the majority of the time actually boating and enjoying their time with some stations having miniature competitions and activities such as races or trivia. The activities may include:

  1. Kayaking
  2. Canoeing
  3. Stand Up Paddleboarding
  4. Small Boat Sailing
  5. Boating skills and knots


In the event of consistent thunder and/or lightning, participants will go to the dining hall for other activities such as  aquatics based skills instruction, competitions, team building games, etc.


Important Items for Participants

Due to the nature of this program area, there are many items for participants to both consider and bring. Participants should bring swim attire and their health form to the program area. Participants MUST BRING a signed unit swim classification record indicating that they have passed the swim test and achieved swimmer classification within the last year.
