The Schuylkill River Sojourn is a 7-day, 112-mile guided paddle from Schuylkill Haven to Boathouse Row in Philadelphia that is organized annually by the Schuylkill River Heritage Area
. Participants can register for one day or the entire week.
The 2013 Sojourn theme is The Schuylkill During the Civil War.
New this year! During the first two weeks in April we will accept registrations from full-trip registrants only. This is being done to ensure that people who wish do the full trip don't miss out on the first two days, which fill up very quickly.
Registration for all other participants will open April 15!
For the first time this year we are offering online registration
. After you register online, you will still need to download several waivers and medical forms that must be filled out and mailed in with original signatures. Links to these forms will be available on your registration confirmation form. They can also be found on our website at http://www.schuylkillriver.org/Sojourn.aspx
If you do not wish to register online, you can download a registration form from our website and mail or fax it to us.
Our 2013 Sojourn outfitter is Doug Chapman, owner of Take it Outdoors Adventure Group.
Our guides will once again be Alan and Betsy Quant from Canoe Susquehanna.
