Paddle the Upper Part of the Schuylkill

September 3 @ 9:00 am UTC-5

kayak the schuylkill with Take It Outdoors Adventures

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Paddle the upper part of the Schuylkill River in Schuylkill County.  If you haven’t seen the upper part of the Schuylkill you will be suprised that it’s the same river that runs through Chester, Montgomery & Philadelphia Counties.  We will paddle this narrow and twisty river in the shadow of the Appilachina Mountains and experience the infamous “Chutes” for a little thrill.  How will you react to the Chutes?

We will meet at TIOA at 9:00am to load people/kayaks into the van/trailer.  Our driver will take us to the put in and pick us up at the take, which eliminates the need to shuttle vehicles. We will stop somewhere along the way so we can get lunch, snacks and a bathroom break before the river trip.

We will paddle about 12 miles where the driver will pick us up to take us back to Linfield.

There is limited seating so sign up now.

Cost if you have your own kayak – $60 – Includes shuttle of you and your boat, certified guide and logistics

Cost if you need to rent a kayak – $105 – Includes kayak, PFD, & paddle rental, shuttle, certified kayak guide and logistics

WE WORK HARD ON LOGISTICS BASED ON YOUR RSVP.  PLEASE RESPECT OUR EFFORTS AND THOSE ON THE WAITLIST, AND DON’T BE A LAST MINUTE BAILER OR A NO SHOW!!!

THE SCHUYLKILL CANAL ASSOCIATION NEEDS YOUR HELP
The volunteers of the Schuylkill Canal Association are asking for our help. This Saturday they need some volunteers to help fill sandbags. As a thank you for your help Sly Fox will give a free pint coupon to anyone who volunteers (must be over 21).

The SCA volunteers spend a lot of their personal time, tools and resources to keep the Canal operating...so when they ask for our help we try to do our part in order to keep the canal operating.

This latest project consists of construction of a bulkhead and floating dock at the portage on Schuylkill Canal. This project goal is to eliminate erosion of canal bank and allow safe and easy access to the canal for boaters.

Please email us at doug@takeitoutdoorsadventures.com if you plan on attending.

We plan on meeting at 9:00 a.m. at the Reynolds Dog Park:

Even if you can only give an hour...we appreciate all the help we can get.

Please come out and show your support of the SCA and our beloved Canal Park.

You don't need equipment...Just bring yourself and work clothes. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Please supply us with your email address when you sign up just in case we are meeting at a different spot on the Canal.
