Cardboard Canoe Race

The very first Camp Three Falls cardboard canoe race was a hoot. See our Facebook page for lots more pictures. Thanks to Victor, our nature director, for bringing the idea home from Camp Tuckahoe in Pennsylvania, and to all the troops that participated.

This event was so much fun that we plan to offer it again next year during Boy Scout weeks. Start planning now to design and build a two-man vessel using  nothing but cardboard and duct tape. Leaders told us that this was a great pre-camp activity for their troops.

A word of advice to future cardboard canoeists: Just because the lake is shallow this year, doesn't mean you can get out and walk. The rules (an there aren't many of them) clearly state that you have to paddle all the way. But mostly, have fun.
