Cardboard Canoe Challenge

2 August 2019

Clitheroe Canoeing Club set Settle Scouts and Explorers a challenge last month when they held a competition to make a cardboard canoe in which to tackle seven challenges around a pond! The youngsters made three boats out of old boxes but sadly their vessels became soggy quite quickly. Nevertheless, the Scout’s catamaran won a trophy for the ‘Best Party Boat’ so their efforts were not all in vain. They are now all geared up for another attempt next year when they hope to improve their design to keep them afloat.
