Clothing: A Scout always travels in Class A, so wear it Friday. For the rafting a swimsuit should be worn with shorts over the top. Shoes that are attached to your feet and can get wet are required! No Crocs in the river. Either sandals that attach firmly to your feet or old tennis shoes that can and will get wet. The weather will be mild otherwise, but always bring your rain jacket.
