It is with sincere disappointment that we must share that the GSSNE Rhody Rockets canoe team will not have a 2017 season.
We recognize and acknowledge how worthwhile and valuable this experience has been for our older Girl Scouts over the past 25+ years, but unfortunately, we were not able to secure a certified, qualified coach and/or Lifeguard for the 2017 season. We did have several, interested volunteers come forward but they did not have the needed and necessary credentials. We truly prioritize the safety of Girl Scouts in all of our programs and that is a consideration that is always at the forefront in all we do.
We are committed to continuing our efforts to find a coach and/or Lifeguard for future seasons because we know that the canoe team has made a difference in the lives of so many local Girl Scouts. A difference that has been built, no doubt, on the foundation of each girl's experiences as a Rhody Rocket team member.
If you might be interested in other Girl Scout boating opportunities, please check out our Camp Guide! Our Camp Guide will be coming out in late December this year and we offer great boating experience at both Camp Cookie (canoeing) and Camp Hoffman (canoeing, kayaking, sailing, surfing, and stand-up paddleboarding). You can also check out our Program Catalog for more fun activities for older Girl Scouts.
We thank you for your understanding, and hope to see you at camp this summer enjoying the beautiful waterfronts at Camp Cookie and Camp Hoffman!
