Registration for the June 8-14 annual river paddle is now open! The six day river-camping adventure will cover 92 miles of the Namekagon River, part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway in NW Wisconsin.

People of all ages, from 14-84, have participated in this week of discovery. One paddler said it well, “It’s a week to live in the moment. Enjoy all that the Riverway has to offer and enjoy each day on the river. I enjoy getting to know the other paddlers and myself.”

The registration fee will be $400 for SCRA members and $450 for non-members. The registration covers shuttles, transportation of gear along the route, six nights of camping, evening educational programs, 5 meals, and more!
