ADK Announces 42nd Annual Paddle Outing

ADK Announces 42nd Annual Paddle Outing

January 18, 2024

Paddle in, and adjacent to the St. Regis Canoe Area – the largest wilderness canoe area in the East, covering 18,400 acres and over fifty ponds. The area is noted for its clear spring-fed ponds, short carries, and tranquil beauty.

The outing, which takes place from July 15-25, 2024, is based at Paul Smith’s College. There are over forty different opportunities for day trips. Each morning begins with optional stretching exercises, followed by breakfast in the college dining hall. After breakfast, select the items for your bag lunch, prepare your gear, get to the point of embarkation, and you’re off! Trips are led by other outing participants and vary in length and difficulty. Some trips may involve carries. You select the trip that meets your interest and skill level.

Following each day’s trip, return to the dorm and enjoy a hot shower (laundry facilities are also in the dorm) and relax, then enjoy the fellowship of other paddlers in the lounge. After dinner, the group meets to hear about the day’s trips and plan trips for the following day. Evenings offer the possibilities of walks, reading, and games. Cost includes lodging and three daily meals – dinner on the first day through a box lunch on the last day. Price does not include canoes, kayaks, or transportation of your boat.

Accommodations are in double occupancy dormitory rooms with roommates assigned for solo attendees. A few truly single rooms are available each session to allow as many as possible to participate in this popular event.

Registration is by mail only. Send $110 per person non-refundable deposit to Dave Tanner; 25 Taylor St; Cortland, NY 13045; 607-423-1714; DLTanner@twc.com. Prices are subject to change.
