The Adirondack Paddling Symposium was derived from paddlers like you. The goal is simple: to build skills to further your paddling enjoyment. We focus on the beginner to intermediate paddler, and by choosing patient and caring instructors, create an environment of encouragement that is judgement free and truly furthers the enjoyment you get from paddling. This level of paddler has the most to gain from instruction. When you understand how the body and boat/ board work together, you get the most from your craft and the most from yourself. With so many amazing places to explore by paddle power, the more efficient you are, the more confident you are. By offering this educational resource to our community, it is our dream to see you and many others get the most out of your adventure, go further and be bolder. 

Registration is open for this year's Symposium, which will be held June 14-17 in Saranac Lake, headquartered at the Harrietstown Town Hall.
