Trip Details Join us for morning stretches before we head out in our kayaks for the day. Typically we will aim to be on the water by 9:30 and back to the campsite by 4pm. This will leave us plenty of time to relax, have dinner and indulge in something sweet. An evening yoga session to wind down at the end of the day may also be an option. Participants are responsible for bringing and preparing their own meals or they can find a fellow camper to share with. We plan to secure 2 campsites in order to accommodate solo camping.
