Test your knowledge of canoeing skills

Tippy canoe? See if your paddling know-how will stay afloat in this canoeing quiz.

WHEN I WAS A SCOUT in the 1950s, my greatest thrill was summer camp and the overnight canoe trip. Only Scouts who passed their swimming requirement were invited. If you knew how to run waves and steer around rocks, you were considered a hero. Hitting a rock — or worse, capsizing — drew laughter. As in life, good skills were rewarded, and bad ones had consequences.

Before heading out on a canoeing trip with your troop or crew, test their knowledge of the sport. Choose the best answer.
