Save the Dates! The 25th Delaware River Sojourn will take place from June 15 through June 22, 2019! A volunteer river cleanup will be held on June 14.

Held in June to celebrate National Rivers Month, the Delaware River Sojourn is a guided paddling trip on the wild and scenic Delaware River, combining canoeing/kayaking, camping, educational programs, and historical interpretation.

Geared for families and indivduals of all ages and skill levels, participants can sign up for the whole event or for the section(s) or day(s) of their choice.

By getting individuals out on the river to experience it first-hand, the Delaware Sojourn aims to promote stewardship of the Delaware River Basin and its resources.

DRBC is a proud supporter of the Delaware River Sojourn and participates on its steering committee, which plans and organizes the annual not-for-profit event.
