Canoe Adventure

Saturday, July 20


Join us for Canoe Adventure!


Calling all canoers! Join us for our annual journey along the water of the Ohio & Erie Canal in south Akron. Participants will begin their journey at the Reach Opportunity Center at Summit Lake, where they will be shuttled to the starting docks on Nesmith Lake. Group by group, canoers will head down the Ohio & Erie Canal and through Summit Lake before ending their trip with a picnic lunch back at the Reach Center. All canoe supplies are included - we just need you!



$40.00 per person for non-members
$30.00 per person for members of the OECC
$15.00 for children under 12.

Please note: There is no same day registration. Every admission must be prepaid and is non-refundable.


Important Information Before You Register

  • We ask that all participants stay within their assigned group during the entire trip
  • For your safety, we ask that you remain in your canoe until the ride is complete and wear a life vest at all times
  • Each canoe should contain at least two riders (no single riders) and at least one rider who has some experience operating a canoe
  • The trip is six miles long on a canal that has no current, and this may be considered a strenuous event
  • The first shuttle departs the Reach Opportunity Center at 8:15 am

Online registration is over, but you can still sign up! If you are interested in participating, please contact our office at 330-374-5657.
