Guide to Safe Scouting states:
For Cub Scouts: Canoeing and rafting for Cub Scouts (including Webelos
Scouts) is to be limited to council/district events on flat water ponds or
controlled lake areas free of powerboats and sailboats. Prior to
recreational canoeing, Cub Scouts are to be instructed in basic handling
skills and safety practices.
Since your plan involves running river water, Webelos Scouts may not
participate. Your Scouting professional is correct.
Yours in Scouting,
