Weekend Adventures in the Western Catskills

East Branch Adventure Camp

We are very excited to team up with our dear friends at Susan’s Pleasant Pheasant Farm, to offer family friendly adventure weekends. This series of weekend long adventures will start at the end of June, and run to the end of October. Space is limited, so don’t wait to sign up!


Lake Wawaka is the perfect place for us to help you hone your paddling technique. The tranquil waters, and peaceful setting provide a easy learning experience for paddlers of all abilities. 

Nature Hikes

With trails meandering along the stream, and over the rolling hills, we have a variety of scenery to enjoy. If we are careful enough, we can even experience the joy of watching a variety of birds, and wildlife, as they go about their day.


We will have access to Lake Wawaka, and  a beautiful section the East Branch of the Delaware.  We will work with you on the lake and stream, to teach you the different methods for catching the various species of fish. We will try to coax a few of these marvelous fish out of the water, to join us for a photo.  Or, we might even convince them to stay for dinner. 

Campfire Cuisine

The one thing  better than a good meal after a day of adventure, is one cooked over a campfire. We will prepare delicious camp fare, and provide a crackling campfire to share tall tales  around at the end of each day. 


What better way to beat the summer heat, than a good old fashion swimming hole. We can guarantee this one won't be crowded, or full of trash. The East Branch is a special place, and our friends have taken great care with this section. 

Night Paddling

Imagine effortlessly gliding under a star filled sky. The Western Catskills, are home to low rolling mountains, and wide open skies. The nights are dark in these parts. So when the conditions, and timing are right, Mother Nature puts on quite a show.
