Welcome to Camp letter and packing list are HERE

For children entering grades 6-8 in Fall 2021

Each day of this camp will bring campers up-close and personal with the Patuxent River and the creeks that flow into it. Campers will learn paddling fundamentals: safety, strokes, and rescues - as well as learning firsthand about water quality and the natural history of the river.

Participants must be able to swim and be strong enough to paddle their own kayak.  We will not be using the tandem/double kayaks this year.

Naturalist in Charge: Tania Gale
