Do you know a student who might like to paddle with the Sojourn? We might be able to make that happen!

The availability of Youth Paddle Program funding for 2018 will be announced in the winter/early spring of 2018.

What is the Youth Paddle Program?

Each year, the Delaware River Sojourn provides funding for a limited number of youth teams to join us on the river. Funding is contingent on grant availability and may vary year to year. A funded team includes 5 students (over 12 years old and less than 18), plus one leader. The leader must be a teacher or scout leader.
