About the Delaware River Sojourn

The Sojourn is a seven-day or eight-day guided paddling trip on the wild and scenic Delaware River, combining canoeing/kayaking, camping, educational programs, historical interpretation, and more. It is for novice to experienced paddlers of all ages; participants can sign up for the whole event or for the section(s) or day(s) of their choice.

The purpose of the Sojourn is to heighten awareness of and appreciation for the Delaware River and its watershed, which flows for 330 miles through New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. 

Studies and research have shown that connecting with nature is good for your health and well-being, as well as teaches important lessons of conservation and stewardship. In this region, there is no need to travel far to do so; the Delaware River is close by, a gas tank away from about 20% of the nation's population. 

Join the Delaware River Sojourn and experience a fun, ultimate "staycation," which celebrates family, friends, and the great outdoors! Come out and paddle the Delaware River, the longest un-dammed river east of the Mississippi.
