The 2014 Adirondack Canoeing Symposium is on scenic Wolf Pond in Ray Brook New York.  

Email with questions.  For 2014 our Symposium runs six days to allow participants time to explore the Adirondack Mountains.  

Mornings focus on Solo coursework emphasizing competent paddling; extreme heels and stances limited to specific courses.  Tandem coursework occurs afternoons, allowing solo paddlers to experience FreeStyle’s duality.  Afternoon Solo Topics include Paddling the Inside Circle, Sit & Switch Touring, Creek Running, Canadian Style Solo, High Kneel Thrusts, Gimbals and Private Sessions with Instructors of choice.  

Wednesday will be relaxed.  We’ll have a trip, Slalom Races, Dead Fish Polo, an opportunity to try SUP paddling and an Interpretive Recital with a few special topics, but intensive FreeStyle coursework pauses to allow muscle recovery, and we dine at Lisa G’s to rest our Culinary Crew.

The expanded format allows paddlers to pick individualized instructional tracks and combine courses with recreational options. Opt for a day-long paddle trip Monday, Wednesday or Friday with Adirondack Guide Griz Caudle or spend a day hiking, or site seeing in the High Peaks.  The Canoe Symposium is a relaxed vacation opportunity for paddlers and their non-paddling families.  

Hot, cafeteria breakfasts and picnic lunches are served in our community tent Monday through Friday morning.  Dinners are buffet style; provided Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Wednesday dinner is Buy Your Own at Lisa G’s.  Paddlers may serve themselves in campsite or cabin, but meals are where announcements are made and group comraderie developed.  E-mail to join the Culinary Crew and earn courses.
