Four Port Elgin Scouts, three Cubs, and their leaders, learned a lot about canoes during the camp at Robinson Park, Kincardine, on the weekend (April 23-25).

They worked on proper paddling techniques, discussed safety on the water, and learned how to right a canoe after it tips and get back into it.


After a practice session at the park Saturday morning, they took the canoes into the Davidson Centre pool for two hours in the afternoon to get some hands-on training - tipping the canoes, righting them and climbing back into them.

They also enjoyed campfire Friday night and Saturday night before the camp ended Sunday morning.
