I apologize for the line that you are about to read. For most Hudson Valley students, there's less than a month of summer left before the school bus picks them up to start another school year. In light of that, get out and have some fun. There are lots of things to do and here are a few ideas with links to find even more.


Saturday, August 11; 12-3: Atlantic Kayak Tours at Norrie Point in Staatsburg. If you have little or no paddling experience this is the program for you. Depending on the day you could kayak and explore Black Creek, Esopus Island, as well as Mills Mansion. While this program is geared towards adults, children 12 and older can also participate.
