About the event

We are so excited to get back on the water with all of our senior Pathfinders, TLT’s, and Master Guides on Sept. 23 for Beyond the Basics 2023! If you are looking for an adventure-filled event where you'll grow physically and spiritually, this is the one for you!

Activities will include worship and fellowship throughout the day, canoeing/paddling, water survival, and much more. Please keep in mind that this trip is designed to be more of a survival trip and is not for those new to canoeing/paddling or camping in general. We'll be paddling a total of 12 miles, so this is not for the faint of heart!
