More about 5-Day Kayak Trip, August 6-10, 2018, Registration & Deposit

Kayak trips begin on Monday morning when students gather at Turner’s Creek Public Landing off the Sassafras River on Maryland’s upper Eastern Shore.  After a brief orientation, the group will move to the first base camp, located on a preserved 2,000 acre waterfront farm only two miles up the road.  From this site, participants will spend the first part of the week exploring the fresh-water marshes of the upper Sassafras River.

Paddlers are led by three experienced staff members who will provide individualized instruction on safety procedures, paddling skills, and boat handling.   When not paddling, there will be plenty of time to venture ashore to swim, pull seine nets, fish with a hook and line, go marsh mucking, or just relax on the wide, sandy beaches of the Sassafras. 

On Wednesday the group will strike camp and relocate approximately 70 miles south to one of several camp sites on or near the Nanticoke River.  Widely regarded as the most pristine river on the Chesapeake, the Nanticoke and its many tributaries provide participants with some of the most incredible flat-water paddling on the East Coast.  The second base camp is also located within easy striking distance of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Fishing Bay Wildlife Management Area, the Transquaking River, and numerous undeveloped tidal creeks that evoke memories of the Bay recorded by Captain John Smith four centuries ago.
