Registration Payment for the Retreat is closed until 2022.
Hang a left down Route 1 from Ellsworth and the crowds dissipate, but you are navigating towards some of the finest kayaking on the east coast.
Come join Nick Schade and Gerry Polinsky as they introduce you to the amazing coastal waters of Down East Maine. This 5 day event features great kayaking for novice and advanced paddlers alike.
If you would like to join us, please fill out the registration form first before placing your payment order below.
Filling out the registration provides us with all the information we need to plan a safe event, but does not reserve your spot in the event. Your payment of the registration fee after completing the registration form is the final reservation to hold your spot for the week. With the uncertainty surrounding events as a result of COVID we have a liberal cancelation policy.
After adding your payment to the cart below, you can complete your check out by visiting the shopping cart, which can also be found at the top left of every page. (Ignore the stuff about shipping that doesn't apply to this event)
NOTE for Connecticut Residents: Due to a simple minded commerce site, when you go to pay for your registration, it will look like the shopping cart is adding sales tax. Since the event is not being delivered in Connecticut, no sales tax is required. The sales tax will be manually deducted from your payment after you submit your order but before we process your order. You will not end up paying the sales taxes even if it is showing on your receipt. Non-Connecticut residents do not need to worry about sales tax either.
Room and board is included. Each individual or couple will have a private room in a shared apartment. If you would prefer to have guarantee a Private Apartment please select that option below and add it to your cart to upgrade. You may also upgrade to a Rockefeller Apartment in the stately Rockefeller Hall. These upgrades apply per apartment, not per person. A couple traveling together only needs to add one upgrade to cover the apartment for both individuals.
