Sixteen Scouts and six adults did a canoeing “micro-outing” at Lake Audubon in Reston. This is part of the Troop’s efforts to get Scouts outside while social distancing. We created the idea of a “micro-outing” which is a short outing closer to home to avoid carpooling.
It took a lot of work by Scouts and adults to get to this point. It involved organizing swim tests, gathering health forms, fixing the canoe trailer and doing a test micro-outing three weeks ago. But all that work means our troop is now ready to more easily do more micro-outings – both with canoeing and other themes.
