Canoeing Day Trip:
The "Canoeing Day Trips" are new to our program and use the Croton River near our Base Camp in Ossining, NY. These trips are designed for a minimum of four and a maximum of eight people, and may include children, 11 years old or above, who sign up with an adult, (max two children per adult). We will meet at our Base Camp at nine in the morning, or the 9:30a train at the Croton-Harmon Metro-North RR station, (by prior special arrangement), for our trip and will return by about four pm the same day. Trip will include a refreshing swim, information on the history of the Croton River and a short hike. Lunch will be provided on an island at midday.

Week-long Base Camp Whitewater Trips:
The Canadian Whitewater Week-long Trips use the Rouge and Jacques-Cartier Rivers in Quebec. We arrange car pools from our home base in Ossining, NY. These trips are a base camp format with day trips to do four to eight mile sections of whitewater each day. The daily schedule is layed back and the whitewater is fantastic. The Canadian trips are designed for eight paddlers plus the leaders. Click here for additional information about our Canadian Whitewater Week-long Trips.

Allagash Waterway Wilderness Trip:
Our Allagash Waterway Wilderness Trip returns this year to our program. We meet paddlers in Bangor, ME on Friday morning and return to the meeting place on the following Saturday in the late afternoon. The trip is eight days in the Maine wilderness on a chain of lakes and the Allagash River. The scenery is spectacular and the camp sites are great. The trip is designed for six paddlers including the two leaders. Click here for additional information about our Allagash Waterway Wilderness Trip.

Weekend Whitewater Instruction Trips:
Champaign Canoeing's whitewater instruction program blends learning whitewater canoeing with camping & cycling and just a plain good time. We offer a progressive series of three levels of weekend canoe instruction trips, beginning with basic whitewater skills and proceeding through the most advanced instruction available in this part of the country. Participation in our instruction series does not require any previous canoeing experience. Click here for additional information about our Weekend Whitewater Instruction Program.
