Canoe the Delaware River

Learn to canoe and camp on this amazing two-day, one-night youth adventure. You'll begin your journey on the shores of the Delaware River, where your guides will give you a safety and instruction briefing. With your canoes loaded, life vests fastended and spirits high, you will set out on the river, practicing your new skills. Your guides will be there for support, but the day is yours to take the lead and navigate the river.

Your home for the night is a campsite along the river. With the fire crackling, you will have a chance to talk about your adventure and how tomorrow will be even better.

After a hearty breakfast the next morning, set out on the river with a new level of confidence and skill.
