The Delaware River is the longest free-flowing river in the eastern United States. Float, paddle and learn about the river and its history as experienced leaders demonstrate basic boating skills and lead river trips of differing lengths. Improve your rafting, canoeing and kayaking skills under the supervision of expert instructors, while a naturalist brings you up-close to the varied flora and fauna on the river and on shore. Hear presentations on local history and geology that give you the context needed to make the most out of your river experience.


• Two days of hands-on paddling on the beautiful Delaware River and a hike in the National Recreation Area.
• Professional lectures by the National Park Service on the history of the area and an evening concert on the lawn at the inn.
• Enjoy a host of other activities on land including concerts, riverside barbecues and productions by a local playhouse.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
