Did COVID-19 through a wrench in your Canoe certification? Does Your Canoe certification expire this summer? No worry, we are offering the first ever Recertification Canoeing certification class.

Canoeing is a great team-building activity and an enjoyable and relaxing way to experience the outdoors. This American Canoe Association (ACA) approved course will expose participants to basic water safety and paddling skills for tandem canoeing on flat water.

Participants must complete all requirements to the satisfaction of the instructors to pass the training, certifying you to take Girl Scouts canoeing on any flat water lake.

This course will include the following: ACA Level 1 Smart Start Paddling, ACA Level 1 Quick Start Your Canoe, ACA Level 1 Introduction to Canoeing, and ACA Flat-water Canoe Safety and Rescue Skills.

If you are interested in becoming a GSNEO Flat Water Canoe Facilitator please email for the application.

NOTE: This certification enables you to facilitate programs at all three GSNEO camp properties.

**This class is only for current Canoe certifications that are expiring in the year 2021
