Calendar of Trips

We add trips to our schedule as they are requested. If you don’t see the trip you would like on our calendar you can register for the one you are interested in and we will add it to our calendar as long as our schedule permits. Trips are created on a first come, first serve basis so the further ahead you register the more options you have in trips and start time. Visit the Choosing a Trip page for guidance to help you decide which trip would be best for your group.

Outdoor activities are always subject to changes in weather. If there is just a light rain or passing shower we can go ahead with the trip. Incase of storms with heavy rains and/or lightning we will cancel the trip and notify you as far ahead as possible. Trip availability also depends on the river levels.

Why should children have all the fun. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself as special, and a good way to do that is to escape the stresses of home and work life for a weekend away from it all. That is where the Village of Saxapahaw, NC comes in. Our unincorporated village is known for a place where food is both good and good for you, the visual and performing arts are amazing and where Nature is in her full glory as you hike along or paddle on the Haw River.

This adult weekend adventure camp was created to free you from the chores of life while you enjoy staying in comfortable accommodations, eating great food that is prepared to your liking and paddling and hiking. The camp begins with a wine & cheese social Friday evening and concludes with an afternoon hike or paddle on Sunday. It will be up to you to choose how much or how little you want to participate in the planned activities. It is your weekend to get away.

Fee: $399 per person includes lodging for two evenings at TerraStay Farm, meals (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches & 1 dinner) at the Saxapahaw General Store and guided hiking and river trips in addition to private paddling instruction.

Nothing can be more beautiful than a full moon rising above a Piedmont lake. There is just something magical about moonbeams and water — and sharing the experience of looking at the moon with someone special, even if that someone special is just you.

Participants arrive early enough in the evening to practice paddling, enjoy a beautiful sunset and adjust their eyes to the night sky. As the moonlight gets brighter, we will paddle around to enjoy the night sounds. Eventually, we will “raft-up” and lay back to fully take in our surroundings.

Fee: $40 per person with the canoe/kayak provided.  Trip start time is 8PM.

We will meet at our main office in Saxapahaw.  6079 Swepsonville Saxapahaw road. We are in the basement of this building, our front doors face the river.

This weekend course will provide instruction in the fundamentals of whitewater kayaking.

In the morning of the first day, students will learn about whitewater boating equipment, basic river safety and river navigation.

During the afternoon of the first day, we'll turn to instruction in essential paddling strokes -- forward, draws, sweeps and others -- before embarking on a short river trip to practice  eddy turns, peel outs and ferries.

On the second day, we will put together what was learned the first day with a 5.5 mile river trip that emphasizes river reading skills and negotiating class II rapids.

Fee: $195 per person.  A boat, PFD, paddle, spray skirt, wetsuit and helmet are provided.

This weekend introductory course in the basics of whitewater canoeing stresses technique, safety and enjoyment. Instruction is designed to provide both an understanding of the principals of canoeing in class II whitewater and an opportunity to develop skill through practice. You will learn about equipment, strokes, whitewater maneuvers (e.g., upstream and downstream ferries, eddy turns and peel-outs), river reading, safety, rescue techniques and knot tying. The second weekend day will be devoted to a 5.5 mile river trip. If the opportunity presents itself, we will take time to observe wildlife.

Fee: $195 per person.
