ReCreation Day – Kayaking
Saturday, June 17
This leisurely day affords an opportunity for beginners and experienced paddlers to enjoy the magnificent Hudson River and serenity of Constitution Marsh. As we fully experience the spirit of nature and the culture of the Hudson River valley, we shall share meditations, social interaction, and appreciate our healthy beings. No previous paddling experience is required. If raining or windy, a Hudson Highlands hike will be offered instead. Kayak rental is $70. Donation for the retreat day is $30.
Bring whatever you typically bring to the beach: sunscreen, sunglasses, synthetic shirt, towel, hydration, a warm change of clothes, even a rain jacket just in case. June weather can vary, so dress accordingly. Also cycling gloves mitigate friction on your palms while paddling.
Overnight accommodations are available at the retreat center either the night before or after (Sunday mass is at 11 a.m.). Meals can also be arranged.
This outing is led by Skip Doyle (OutdoorSkipper.com) – a New York State licensed guide, American Canoe Association certified, outdoor instructor for two national outfitters (REI, LL Bean), and has a decade of experience leading outdoor retreats for Holy Mountain / Graymoor.
