Join TRAK as we invite paddlers of all levels to our skills progression camp in the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York, located on section 2 of the 740 mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail.
It will be an adventurous yet relaxing trip led by experienced TRAK Pilots to rustic campsites with water access only - tucked within a seemingly endless network of rivers, hiking trails, and wonderful scenery.
We’ll be meeting in Middle Saranac Lake, NY!
This camp is coordinated and delivered by a team of TRAK Pilots. These folks are experts with their TRAK kayaks, and are also qualified instructors and experienced in the outdoors. They have prepared a number of skills-focused topics that you can learn about and practice, such as:
There is something here for every paddler, are our primary goal is to get you more familiar with your TRAK kayak.
Hey! I'm Jeff. I've been kayaking for 20 years and paddling with a TRAK kayak for about 10. I've taught classes in flat water, multi-day/week outings and white water. As an outdoor photographer I enjoy having the TRAK and the accessibility it provides on any road trip, and I was also a member of the TRAK 20/20 team, and played a key role in developing the TRAK 2.0.
“It was very exciting to be around such a culture of people and find myself on the open waters of the wild pacific coast with such an inviting and welcoming group, in these amazing high-performance kayaks. Never in my wildest dreams would those few basic skills that we learned on the first day, would progress to where we went today.”

“That was really fun. He just broke it down… It’s funny when you have someone take the time to go through things that might be natural. He broke down the surf process into little bitty pieces that made me way more comfortable. I would have never just dove in and done that on my own.”

We'll provide everything you need once you arrive, until you leave. You may want to bring your favourite PFD and paddle, and if you have a TRAK kayak already, bring it with you and save.
