LVKCC Chesapeake Sojourn
2017 Spring Trip
LVKCC Members: It’s time to sign up for our annual spring flatwater paddling weekend. This year we’ll be traveling to YMCA Camp Tockwogh on the Chesapeake Bay. We’ll stay in the camp’s conference center, right on the water, eat dinners in the camp dining hall, and paddle a real mix of water – from the open bay to creeks and secluded coves.

Paddles: There will be options for longer and shorter paddles each day. Typically from 6 miles to as much as 12 miles for the two full days. The schedule will be adjusted if weather requires. Potential paddles include covering the open waters of the northern Chesapeake; exploring the intricacies of Still Pond; searching out the hidden pond by the Sassafras River where the lotus grows; pulling up on a beach to explore a bamboo forest, and paddling up Back Creek to the waters where the catfish lurks. Recommended boat length for the trip is 13 feet or longer.
