Each year the ACA and the Palisades Park Commission with the help of Palisades Camping Association and its camps in the park sponsor and organize the Youth Regatta. The event is a very important canoe regatta for the youth camps in the park. Every year many of the camps bring the entire camp to the race. For some camps this is the most important session for their campers who return year after year especially for this event. At other camps the kids train for the entire summer leading up to the race.  We have 34 different events; a short course for the younger campers and longer course for the older paddlers. The races are for females, males, campers and staff. Everyone has a great time. Most camps bring many campers to act as a cheering section for their paddlers.                    

The regatta now includes a Spirit Award, which is independent from the race results. This has enabled the camps to get a great effort from their kids to show camp sprit and have a good time. Some of the camps use talented and artistic campers to make banners and costumes for weeks before the race. The American Canoe Association has sponsored this event from the start. Young paddlers from the ACA camp at Lake Sebago also compete in the regatta.
