Night Paddles - CANCELLED due to COVID-19

2020 River Camps - CANCELLED

Our popular river camps teach kids how to explore and love their natural world all from the seat of a boat!​​The river camps are licensed by the State and we have experienced instructors that understand the safety of on-water activities while balancing the importance of outdoor fun and adventure.  As the river theme and activities repeat throughout the summer, we recommend that participants register for no more than two weeks of camp each summer. 

If you need to cancel your child's registration, please note that the following refund policy applies to all day camp registrations: Refunds must be requested by email and are subject to a $10.00 service fee. If a refund request is made 46 days or more prior to the start of your day camp session 100% of your class fee will be refunded, 30 to 45 days prior 50% of your class fee will be refunded, 15-29 days prior 25% of your class fee will be refunded, 14 days prior 0% will be refunded. If necessary, full refunds will be issued due to COVID-19 precautions.
