Registration Opens for 41st ADK Paddle Outing

Registration Opens for 41st ADK Paddle Outing

January 5, 2023

Registration Opens: January 17, 2023

Event Date: July 10-20, 2023

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 will be 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 your 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.
