We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, September 27, 2023.
Come and explore this beautiful creek and history of the first battle of the American Revolution. After your paddle on Moores Creek, bring a lunch to enjoy the beautiful picnic area of this park. Once your meal is finished, we will have a guided tour of the battle grounds, guided by one of the parks knowledgeable staff members.
The program fee includes the use of a kayak, paddle, and personal flotation device (PFD), which must be worn at all times on the water. Tandem kayaks can be provided for those who would like to paddle together and can be requested during registration; both paddlers in the tandem must be registered participants.
Participants who wish to use their own kayak, paddle, and/or PFD may do so and are given an opportunity to make note during registration, but must still wear their PFDs at all times. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
All outdoor programs are subject to change based on weather and minimum program enrollment. If you register for a program that is canceled or postponed, you will be notified by staff.
Restrooms: it is unlikely that any restrooms will be available before, during, or after any of our trips. Some trips (Eagles Island) will not involve getting out of our kayaks. Please plan accordingly.
Shoes: please wear shoes for the duration of this trip. Water shoes or sandals that will not slide or pull off in mud, muck, or sand under water. No flip flops please.
Water/snacks: Please bring plenty of water and your own snacks as you wish. Drinking water will not be provided. Some but not all trips will include breaks for snacks. For those that do not include stops (Eagles Island), you may still wish to have a snack in the boat with you. Please be prepared to pack all of your trash out with you.
Sunscreen/Bug spray: Please bring/use your own sunscreen and bug spray. Most of the trips we will go on are buggy and kayaking is a great way to get sunburned legs and forearms!
