Spend the day on the water! For this adventure, we’ll paddle to West Point, the oldest of the five American service academies. Built in the Military Gothic style, it was designed to harmonize with the landscape around it. We’ll get the unique chance to see the castle-like campus from the water as we paddle on the Hudson. We’ll also keep an eye out for wildlife, especially local birds that call the area home. Join us on this exciting water adventure!

No prior experience necessary, but if you have never paddled expect the trip to feel like an INTERMEDIATE-level trip.
