Why You’ll Want The New Kayaking Merit Badge [Video]

We love new badges in Scouting. We love ’em even more here at the Summit if they are based on the great outdoors — and that’s exactly where one of the newest Scouting merit badges, Kayaking, will take you. The skills you’ll learn can take you anywhere from a lake to the wild whitewater or over the ocean’s waves. How’s that for adventure?

Here at the Summit, we like kayaking so much, we’ve created over 102 surface acres of water for you to give your new skills a try. That’s plenty of room for you and your friends to get your paddle on!

Of course, in our excitement, we had to give the new merit badge a try. Check out the video (above) to see Venturer Hesper B. in action at the recent Outdoor Retailer demo day in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Looks like a great time, right?

So grab a paddle and earn that merit badge. You’ll learn all the skills you need to skim the waters of the Summit with ease.

Just one more way to “Go Big. Get Wild.” at the 2013 National Jamboree!
