The Delmarva Paddlers Retreat 2020 is Cancelled

Because of the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19, where we will be come October, what protocols we will need to adhere to, and most importantly the health and safety of our volunteers and guests we have found no responsible way to hold the event this year. 

 

Camp Arrowhead has cancelled their youth camp activities for this summer. They do not know what their requirements for physical distancing and disinfecting will be by October. We have been keeping in regular contact with them. 

Breaking News!!!!!!!

Do stay tuned here and on our Facebook page. The video and IT gurus at HRGF are trying to figure out a way to do a virtual combined event. Those details will be posted as they become available. 

Hope too see everyone in October 2021,

stay safe.

Another successful Delmarva is behind us.

Thank you all.

Where do we start? 8 gorgeous kayaks were built and launched. The workshops were exceptional. The on water classes were well received. The weather wasn’t perfect but was very workable. Susan Conrad was spotted several times having too much fun. Sign up for her newsletter and let her know we want her to return next year to tell us about her latest adventure.

Mike Hamilton keeps coming up with new ideas, we can't wait till next year. 

Have you seen Peter's Videos?

What if the kayak build was reality TV? Peter and friends have the answer!

And for good measure here's Peter's video tribute to Delmarva 2019

Special Guest Susan Conrad,

a confused woman and who can't make that final commitment to go with Greenland.

We're going to have to help her out.

Click the image to hear her tell about it.

Accomplished paddler and writer Susan Conrad will be our Special Guest this year. A ‘Women Who Paddle Ambassador’, among many other paddling achievements she has paddled the Inside Passage and written a book about it. She’ll be our presenter Friday night, ‘Get Outside, Find Your Inside’. She wants to learn the Greenland paddle. We think she’s coming to the right place. We will have copies of her book on hand for purchase as a fundraiser for Delmarva.

Just a little reflection on the 30th Annual Delmarva. Peter couldn't make it but with a lot of help from his friends he still put this together.

Delmarva Paddlers Retreat 2018 is over and it was one of the best and from the feedback so far it looks like that was pretty much a unanimous consensus.

Well Done Mike and the rest of the Team!
