Scouts working on Canoeing Merit Badge should bring:
1) Blue Card signed by Scoutmaster (leave in car with dry clothes!)
2) Printed copy of Canoeing Merit Badge Workbook:
It is a good idea to start using the workbook as it can be a reference.  The primary focus of this trip is actual time in the canoe so not all requirements may be completed.  Incomplete requirements should be completed by the Scout at home and reviewed with Merit Badge Counselor.

Here is a map of the lake and approximate route of travel.
