2016 All-Branch Kayaking Summit

2016 All-Branch Kayaking Summit

Kayak Leaders, Course Instructors, Committee members - or anyone really interested in developing our Mountaineers kayaking programs, should feel welcome to attend the annual organization-wide summit to address issues like leadership requirements, granting equivalencies between branches, minimum standards, and other issues related to kayaking in general.

Each year, we try to ensure that committee leaders from all the branched where an activity is listed gather to address common issues, review minimum standards and safety concerns, and look at opportunities to enhance and improve our programs. The 2014 Kayak Summit had 28 committee leaders in attendance and addressed issues related to the kayaking minimum standards, website issues, how to create and promote an Intermediate Kayaking Course, and areas that subcommittees of interested volunteers could flesh out and study such as youth programs and SK ratings for paddles.
