The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association's HERYN (Helping Engage our River's Youth with Nature) Program is offering six youth kayaking/fishing program days next week June 21-26) at a campground near New Columbia.
There is currently an opening for a 10-13 year-old female participant on Thursday, June 24. The spot will be filled on a first-registered, first-filled basis. We are also taking names for possible backup options if someone else has to cancel last-minute. The program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a rotation between kayaking and fishing instruction by some of the region's best outdoors instructors and a team of dedicated helpers.
The program is free for participants (ages 10-13) thanks to assistance from a Fish and Boat Commission R3 grant along with a number of donations and other assistance. It includes a full day's instruction and lunch for participants.
