REC-BSA Noyo Redwoods to Waves Adventure Trek

Camp Noyo Redwoods to Waves Adventure Trek is a trek program that is based in either or both sessions of Noyo Scouts BSA Summer Camp.  This trek experience is designed for Venturers, Sea Scouts, and older Scouts BSA members (minimum age 14) and includes unit adults.  The camp fee is somewhat higher than the regular camp fee due to the nature of the adventures included in the trek.

The Redwoods to Waves Trek starts out with a train ride on the California Western Railroad to the magical Camp Noyo. Your travel back in time will allow you to see redwood forest, and practice your kayaking techniques in the Noyo River at camp. You will meet your Trek staff guide who will lead you on your orientation, building on the essential skills needed to carry out all of the task for this adventure.  

Following a short stay in camp, you will board a west bound train to Tunnel No. 1 where you will embark on the first leg of your adventure joining Liquid Fusion Kayaking on at float down the river investigating the flora and fauna of the Noyo River watershed and you will have the opportunity to perform a service project along the way. Guides will provide careful guidance down the river to your campsite at Dolphin Island in the Noyo Harbor. (Tides are the essential part of this adventure in the event - the tides are not timed to the trains schedule, participants will return to Fort Bragg and be shuttled to Dolphin Island where they will Kayak up river and back down.)

At Dolphin Island (a full service campground), the Noyo staff will provide all of your cooking essentials and food to help you manage your meals for the next three days.

Pacific Ocean Fishing Adventure is day three with a hike to the other side of the harbor. You will start to explore the ocean and try to hook that trophy fish!  Trek II is the largest Noyo harbor charter fishing boat. You will need to purchase a California fishing license before you begin your adventure. Depending on how you handle motion sickness, something for seasickness to assure your comfort will be an essential part of this trip.   

Depending on your scheduled fishing trip and your option to go horseback riding, your crew will be shuttled to Ricochet Ridge Ranch for a ride up Ten Mile Beach and back to the ranch -- during this ride you will be guided by exceptional horse men and women that will teach you the basics of horsemanship.

To add to the excitement on this trek, a local crew club will teach you the fundamentals of rowing, then guide your team on a trip through the harbor  under your own power in a 12-person whaling boat. And if that is not enough, the Noyo Harbor US Coast Guard Base will give you a guided tour of the  base and one of the rescue boats.  

With your final day upon you, the challenge will be appropriate as you master your kayaking skill in the harbor then the Pacific Ocean. Liquid Fusion Kayak will help you use all your skill to plan and execute your adventure on open water. The lifeguards' professionalism and safety are their highest concerns. In this setting you will be able to roll with the waves, see the sea life in its natural habitat, and share great moments with your friends that will last you a lifetime.
