Family Paddling Program

Family Paddling Program
Offered at Little Buffalo State Park

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Kayaks and canoes have been surging in popularity and the Commonwealth’s waters are prime destinations of choice for paddlers. Just as families are engaged in fishing, a growing number have ventured into recreational paddling but need to know best practices and current boating safety to be ready for the water. Whether you’re curious about paddling, thinking about buying a kayak, or would like a proper introduction to paddlesports, the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission (PFBC) is offering a FREE program for families with children, ages 6 and older.

The program will be held on Monday evening, July 16, at Little Buffalo State Park main boat launch with two sessions offered. Each session includes a brief on-land introduction to regulations, equipment, safety and paddling skills, followed by time on the water to practice skills. All canoes, kayaks, paddles, life jackets and safety equipment will be provided. Participants should wear clothes that can get wet.

Pre-registration is required and will be accepted on the Commission’s website until July 11, 2012. Registration attendance numbers are limited. To pre-register and for more information, visit and select “Calendar of Events.”

Re: Family Paddling Program

The PFBC had a paddling gig at the Stonycreek River of the Year Festival at Greenhouse park last weekend in Cambria County.

It is good someone is offering programs like this because kayaking and canoeing ARE surging. I guess all those yuppies that bought Harley's years ago have now discovered water sports and mountain biking the rail to trails areas. The Lehigh River is getting tons of use these days along with the local lakes.
