14TH YEAR IN OPERATION - BSA NATIONALLY ACCREDITED HIGH ADVENTURE PROGRAM
REGISTER NOW Summer 2014! - FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Scroll to the bottom for registration links.
THIS IS WHAT THE SEA KAYAKING PROGRAM IN THE COASTAL EMPIRE COUNCIL IS ALL ABOUT! THE TRUE JOY OF A HIGH ADVENTURE PROGRAM IS THE TOTAL IMMERSION IN A TEAM. AS A TEAM, WE LEARN NEW SKILLS, WORK TOGETHER TO OVERCOME OBSTACLES, DEVELOP NEW FRIENDSHIPS, AND BUILD LASTING MEMORIES.
One of the best Southeastern High Adventure Programs around! Do you like to have fun, seek adventure, want to see new and interesting places, experience nature at it's best? The Coastal Empire Council's Sea Kayaking Adventure Treks have all this and much, much more! Watch Dolphins as they jump and surface right beside your kayak. Eyewitness creatures of nature in the wild like the otter, alligators, birds of all types, occasional visits from large sea turtles, and all the other awesome sights to be seen while out on these great adventures.
You might even be lucky and see a pirate or two! Many of the areas visited during the adventures are places where the pirates of old buried their booty! Blackbeard was one of them. It just so happens that the water routes our Sea Kayakers travel could possibly be near Blackbeard Island.
Come aboard Mateys, hoist ye anchors and cast off for a spectacular High Adventure experience awaiting you at the Coastal Empire Council. Your troop will learn to navigate our local rivers, sharpen their LNT camping skills as well as their teambuilding, leadership, menu planning and safety skills to name a few. They will learn to push themselves a little further and the great satisfaction that comes with finding out they can do it.
