Lunch - Friday and Saturday bring your own or order a box lunch from Rowleys Bay Resort Bakery. The resort restaurant is not open for lunch. We recommend you plan to eat lunch on site - it's a bit too far to get lunch in town in the allotted time.

Adults: $22 per meal
Youth: $20 per meal

Visiting Door County
Perhaps only part of your family is interested in attending the symposium. For the others, Door County offers a huge array of leisure time activities to engross the non-paddlers. Visit the Door County Chamber of Commerce website for hundreds of ideas at www.doorcounty.com.

"The most beneficial aspect of the weekend was becoming part of a paddling community and meeting people who inspire me to learn more and become more confident in the skills I have and have not learned."

"I feel like this weekend was made for me (a 45-year-old with extensive paddling time, but modest training.)"
