Overview

Enjoy a relaxing weekend on Breakneck Pond with friends. After Saturday breakfast, Eileen will review basic canoe and kayak strokes, followed by a lazy paddle to the far side of the lake. No experience is necessary. Paddlers of all levels are welcome, but must be comfortable swimming in deep water. If you rather stay on dry land, enjoy free time hiking, sunbathing or simply relaxing on the porch. We will stay in Stone Lodge for two nights and share Communal Meals that we prepare together. BYO lunch, adult beverages and Social Hour snacks to share. Bring sheets and pillow case or sleeping bag, towels, hiking/swimming/paddling gear, sunscreen, bug spray, headlamp and personal toiletries. Check-in time is Friday at 3 pm. Plan to arrive by 6 pm for dinner. Check-out time is Sunday at 11 am, although you are welcome to enjoy the camp until 3 pm. Space is limited to 10 guests, so register early using the Register Now button. Registration deadline is August 2, 2017. This program is led by volunteer leaders. Paddling and yoga equipment is provided free of charge courtesy of the NY-NoJ Chapter. Personal canoes & kayaks are allowed; no permit is required.
