2012 Trip Leader Planning Guide

Final planning for a high adventure canoe trip

We've put together a complete planning guide for trip leaders of our high adventure canoe trips. The guide is split into multiple sections, making it easier for you to print the guide. The guide is in .pdf format, and requires the Adobe Reader plug-in. If the Acrobat Reader opens up then you do not need to download the Reader. Many browsers already have the Reader as a plug-in, and if yours does, all you need to do is click on the pages, let them fully load, then print them. If yours doesn't, download the Reader from the Download Acrobat Reader link, install it according to the instructions given by Adobe, then come back and print the guide.
