Canoeing with OA!

Let the water carry you down stream!

On Canoe trips, all of the group camping gear, food, and personal equipment get piled into the canoes and are carried downstream by the current as you paddle along.  Canoe trips paddle down the Delaware River, passing through New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania (and some groups cross "Tri-State Rock" at the junction of all three states). Canoe mileage varies depending on how quickly the stream is flowing, but usually 4-8 hours/ day are spent on the water.
