We meet in the morning at Paws'n'Paddles, load canoes and gear and drive to Stanley Mission. We will start with a short paddle to the Church site. Along the way, we'll practice your paddling strokes. We will camp by 'Little Stanley Rapids'. If you feel up to the challenge, here is your chance to try out some easy white water.

We will paddle downriver at an easy pace and pick a wilderness camp site on the way to Nistowiak Falls. We will take a side trip to Nistowiak and Airplane Falls.

We will paddle back to 'Little Stanley Rapids' and take an evening paddle to the rock art site. At camp, we will make our own willow brushes and red ochre paint and try ourselves in rock art.
