Tour Monday

We encourage you to join us Monday and put your new skills to the test on “Tour Monday.”  Tour Monday” is an additional $75.00 and can be registered early or at the event. See our full list of Tours HERE for more details on cost and to register. “Tour Monday” options will be announced at the Saturday “Evening Presentations.” This gives us time to factor participation as well as conditions like weather, wind and of course the pesky Black Flies. (Participants in Tour Monday must be a student of the Symposium.)


Although we encourage students to learn in their own boat or board, as there is an intimate relationship between craft and paddler that does enhance the ability to learn, we also realize some folks may want to a use more performance craft or may not have made their purchase yet.  For those we do have rental options, but PLEASE note our fleet is limited.  If you need to rent, we encourage you to register ASAP.

Lodging & Camping

For those looking to be closer to the out of doors for your adventure, we suggest the following campsites.

For those looking for hotels, here is the list of our “Host Hotels.” There are others in town for you to research, but as these locally owned hotels help support the event and our community, we hope you will choose one of these

Minimal Waste Event

Adirondack Paddling Symposium is a Minimal Waist event. Like you, we too are lovers and protectors of the outdoor world.  So with that, along with looking for ways to reduce as much garbage as we can, by composting and recycling, we will not be using any plastic bottles, cups or utensils.  So we ask that you please:

Together we can make a small difference at this event, but continue to foster this kind of thinking as a group, for the days to come.

Cancellation Policy

We certainly hope that you will be able to join us, but we understand that circumstances arise.  We just also ask that you understand the cancellation policy.  As we are planning for coaches to come from many areas of the country and we need to plan for meals, knowing our attendance is vital for us to put on a great event. Cancellation before May 20th: full refund.  Cancellation May 20th or later: no refund will be available. (Although this is and will remain our published policy, during the situation presented by CV19 we will be working our guests to assure 100% satisfaction if we need to cancel due to NY State law.)
