Additional areas of the waterfront have been opened for Scouts to test their canoeing, rowing, and sailing skills. A fishing trail has been created to allow easier access to the pond. Cruise the pond in style on a fast-moving kayak. Merit badge instruction begins at the Mayfield Shelter in the center of the action.
