Canoe/Kayak Float Trip

Junior  Cadette  Senior  Ambassador

Getting away for a canoe trip is a significant memory for a young person. Our facilities are top drawer, shower houses sparkling clean and new and we offer a unique range of lodging choices for our camper guests.

This section of the Big Niangua provides a picturesque float down a river that is mostly lazy, occasionally thrilling and rarely challenging. Staffed by a BSA Venture Crew, we have First Aid and Swift Water Rescue trained guides on the river with our groups. 

Typical weekends start on a Friday night arrival, Saturday float and Sunday departure.
