Essential Eligibility Criteria
We are offering 2 overnight camping/kayaking trips this year. Trip 1 (June 7-9) will be a slightly longer paddle with more time on the water and a faster pace of paddling. Trip 2 (Sep 13-15) is structured for those who are newer to paddling and will be shorter distance and less stretches of time in the boat. To decide which trip is best for you, see paddler criteria for both trips here.


We are looking for volunteers who are experienced paddlers and can accompany the group for the duration fo the trip. Volunteers may be required to help with transfers, equipment moving, on the water support and campsite activities. Paddling experience is essential. Please register as a volunteer at the link below.
