I might be coming over as an escort officer with some British cadets this summer. I don't know whether I've og the gig yet, but anyway I have applied for the Rocky Mountain course. I was wondering if anyone had any useful info/tips/etc that I should have before heading over. Specifically I am curious about exactly what kind of adventurous activities are conducted. I have experience and qualifications in climbing and hillwalking (for what good they'll do for Cananda - we don't have a bear issue in the UK!) but I can't remember ever having actually been in an open canoe...As an escort officer would I be expected to teach/instruct? No probs on the old climbing and camping (except for the bears!) but should I get myself some canoeing experience before I go or needn't I worry on that score? Also, should I try and forget everything I've ever heard about Bob and Doug MacKenzie lest I be strung up for said bears? Any other tips would be most gratefully appreicated.
