Traditionally, kayakers in the Schuylkill River Sojourn start their trip in Schuylkill Haven and end in Philadelphia. This year that trip is going virtual.  The 2020 Schuylkill River Virtual Sojourn will feature two evening video live streams on August 9 and 16, hosted by longtime Sojourn Guide Matt Stan of Bad Adventures. A tentative in-person guided paddling experience will be offered with a choice of three separate days: Aug 7, 8 or 9. Although different from previous years, the Sojourn will be an unforgettable and adventurous journey of the river.

Schuylkill River Greenways is excited to announce the production of “Schuylkill Soaring,” an original short film celebrating recreation on the river through stunning imagery from land, water and air. Starting in the lush landscapes of the headwaters in Schuylkill County, we will take a virtual journey through both rural and urban communities in Berks, Montgomery, and Chester Counties, with a paddler’s arrival at the picturesque Philadelphia skyline.
