Another way to get on the water. From the classic canoe to the versatile kayak, there are plenty of ways to float in the Lake George Area.

Picture this:  

You paddle out to the middle of a lake. As the sun rises over the far-off mountains, the loons let out a haunting call. You crack a book and read a chapter before the rest of the world wakes up. 

By kayaking or canoeing in the Lake George Area, that life can be yours. Paddling is one of the most peaceful ways to enjoy Lake George Area waters. Rent a kayak at any number of reputable rental locations. At some of these locations, you can even rent stand up paddle boards. If you own your own canoe or kayak, launch it at a public launch. Don’t forget a paddle!

That would be the students at the Luzerne Music Camp. And if you like what you hear, the camp offers concerts in July and August that are open to the public.
