8th Grade Fall Campout - Kayaking


     The 8th grade white water kayaking campout is in San Marcos, Texas. We start off the weekend providing all gear and instruction on running rapids on a river. The theme of this weekend is “Independence”. This is the first campout where the son is in his own vehicle on a river, finding his own way, even though his dad is around him… someplace. We run a set of rapids and then the dads and sons have an opportunity to pull out and talk about how they each decided what set of rapids to take. What a great learning experience in finding your route through the rapids of life. Sunday morning breakout games and questions are all tied into deciding what route you are going to take and learning to ask for help if you don’t know.
