What do you need: You and your child will need to build/paint your raingutter regatta boat. These kits will be handed out at your Den meetings – they need to be the official kits supplied by the Scouts of America, BSA. If you are unable to make your Den Meeting for any reason, please let your Den Leader know and we can coordinate. Please allow yourself a few days to create your boat – believe me it takes time, so don’t let it sneak up on you.
