Rafting

Our day begins with travel to the put in at Harpham Flats, an orientation talk and a safety lecture. After this we divide up into our boat groups, stow our gear, put on our life jackets and begin learning how to maneuver the boat. Your guide will show you the techniques needed to navigate the river and to get the most fun out of your day of rafting.

The first part of the day includes learning proper paddle technique, running Wapinita and Boxcar rapids and perfecting our water fighting skills. At approximately 12 noon we stop along the rivers edge for a delicious BBQ lunch. After lunch it’s back to the boats in search of more white water excitement. Surf City, Oak Springs, White River, Upper and Lower Elevator are the rapids of choice. If you want we’ll stop for an exciting swim through Upper Elevator, seeing 5 foot high waves from eye level is an awesome experience! In between the rapids there is the opportunity to swim, relax and enjoy the scenery as we float along in calm pools.

At Sandy Beach we get in the bus for a short portage around the awesome class six waterfall, Shears Falls. We put back in at Buck Hollow for three more exciting rapids (Upper and Lower Trestles and Wreck rapids) while experiencing the scenic lower river canyon.

The river trip ends at Pine Tree take out at approximately 4:00 pm. We provide transportation back to the rendezvous point where you can change and get organized for your trip home.

Webelos Wood 2014
Are You Ready!

Hello Webelos Leaders, Parents, Cubmasters and Scoutmasters,

Wapiti Webelos Woods is fast approaching, and now is the time to take inventory of your Webelos Dens and find out how many boys and parents will be attending with your Pack.

Webelos Woods is one of the highlights of a Cub Scout's experience. It's a taste of what it will be like after they've crossed over that bridge and joined the ranks of Boy Scouts.

Most of the preparation for the weekend is complete, all we need is to know you're coming.

This will be a fun-filled weekend at Camp Clark that offers something for everyone!

  • Provides an introduction of the Boy Scout program to Webelos youth
  • Gives adults an opportunity to take Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training!
  • Has plenty of activity with campfires, games, skills building, BB guns, archery, and more!

This year's program has been changed to simplify mealtime. Breakfasts will be cooked by camp staff and served in the dining hall. Saturday lunch and dinner will be prepared by participants in campsites (with some help from staff).

Get all of the information on our web site:
http://wapitidistrict.org/webelos-woods.html
