MOAT: Canoeing the Shenandoah River 2

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 5:30 PM - Sun, 30 Jun 2013 12:00 PM

MOAT is a 3-day adventure-based orientation program. These student-led backpacking, canoeing, and rock climbing trips begin at 5:30 pm. For your convenience, trips are scheduled to start after Summer Springboard, however, matching your orientation date to MOAT is not required. You will meet your leaders and other participants and spend the night at the University Recreation Center before heading out on your MOAT trip the next morning. The MOAT experience is designed to give you an opportunity to build social connections with other trip members and introduce you to the amazing local natural areas surrounding Harrisonburg. All trips will involve primitive camping (no showers) and do not require any previous experience. The cost for the MOAT trip is $225.00 and includes instruction, leadership, equipment, and meals.

June 27-30: Canoeing the Shenandoah River 2
Take a step into the past as you enjoy paddling along the Shenandoah River in the Shenandoah Valley. One of the few rivers that runs from South to North the Shenandoah has played a key role in the agricultural development of the region. Many sites of historical interest can be found along the way, including ancient Indian fish dams, Civil War battle grounds and traditional farm architecture. We will be putting in near Luray, VA‐ and take out near Front Royal VA finding great camping spots along the way. This trip also provides abundant opportunities to see Bald Eagles and Osprey in their natural habitat. Fitness Demands: Mild (You will need to help carry canoes and gear from parking lot to the water’s edge ‐ 100 yards) We will be on the water about 4‐6 hours each day paddling and floating.
