Week 2: River Adventures – ages 10 – 12.
The Hudson River is Beczak’s backyard, and during River Adventures children will explore its waters and wildlife by boat and by land. Experienced paddlers from the Yonkers Paddling and Rowing Club teach children the basics of kayaking, and help them use this skill all week long. Children will kayak to the nearby mouth of the Saw Mill River and discover first-hand what tributary means, as well as track the tides to discover what happens in an estuary.
River Adventurers also includes programs with naturalists, a visit to the Piermont Marsh, and more. This confidence-building week fosters children’s natural curiosity and helps them discover the relationship between scientific concepts
and observations of the natural world.
In addition, campers will enjoy Catch of the Day Seining, a train trip to the Kathryn W. Davis Riverwalk Center in Sleepy Hollow, nature-based arts and crafts, free time for games and personal projects and creative play.
