August 3rd and 4th, 2024

Deadline for clinic registration is Wednesday, July 24th.

NOTE: This year we will be camping at Tall Oaks Campground, see camping information below.

Continue improving your skills on the river with us at the Turkey Bash.  There are opportunities for beginner, practiced beginner, intermediate and youth paddlers during this two day clinic in August.  This is also a great opportunity for advanced paddlers to help out by instructing, assisting, or safety boating to build a great community of paddlers.

The clinic’s philosophy is to teach paddlers on water where they feel totally comfortable, with progression to more difficult skills and water after mastery of basic skills has been demonstrated.

Rivers used for the Turkey Bash in the past have been the Middle and Lower Yough, Casselman, Cheat Narrows and even Cheat Canyon.

Saturday Dinner

Traditionally, there is a Saturday evening dinner beginning around 6:00p.m. at Tall Oaks Campground in pavilion 3 (see campground map).  We will be having a catered turkey dinner with all the fixings.  Join us for some good food, camaraderie and a little good natured ribbing.


Camping this year will be at Tall Oaks Campground in Farmington. We will be using pavilion 3, so most of our participants are going to want to reserve sites 50, 52, 53, 54 and seasonal sites S2-5 (see campground map, area circled in red). Pre-registration is required, so call Tall Oaks at 724-329-4777.
