Each day of this camp will bring campers up-close and personal with the Patuxent River and the creeks that surround Calvert County. Campers will learn paddling fundamentals: safety, strokes, and rescues - as well as learning firsthand about water quality and the natural history of the river. We’ll end the week with a day-long paddle adventure and an overnight camp out.

Dinner Thursday, breakfast Friday, all kayak equipment, and tents are provided.
