In partnership with Camden’s Urban Promise, this is a small group canoe tour of the history and ecology of the lower Schuylkill River. Participants will paddle in wooden canoes, hand-built by youth in the Urban Promise’s boat building program. The tour will be lead by trained “River Guides”, high school aged youth who will provide information on important landmarks and urban river ecology. A great way to learn the story of the lower Schuylkill River in style.

Wooden canoes, paddles, and lifejackets will be provided.

All skill levels welcome!
