Seacoast Paddle for the Pups @ William G. Saltonstall Boathouse, Phillips Exeter Academy | Exeter | New Hampshire | United States

Do you love dogs? Do you love to paddle? Do you love to paddle with your dog?

If you answered yes to any one of these questions you need to sign up to join us for the 1st Annual Paddle for the Pups event we’re hosting with our friends at the NHSPCA and Surftech.

Open to ALL paddle craft (i.e. kayaks, paddle boards, canoes), this event is all about getting out on the water, having fun, and doing your part to make a difference in the lives of some very special dogs.

Well behaved dogs are encouraged to join us for this amazing day!

Course Details:
Choose between two dog friendly courses…

Puppy Paddle: A 1-mile cruise that skirts alongside the Swasey Parkway.

Recreational Paddle: A 3-mile recreational paddle out to the 101 bridge. While not officially a race, prizes will be awarded to the first 3 paddles to return to the PEA Boathouse.

Paddle Requirements & Guidelines:

1) Every paddler must pay the $25.00 registration fee regardless of what type of paddle craft you are paddling (Paddleboard vs. tandem kayak).
2) As a fundraiser for the NHSPCA, all participants are required to raise a minimum of $200. Upon registering, a representative from NHSPCA will provide instructions on how to set up your personal fundraising page.
3) All paddlers must wear proper safety equipment including a personal floatation device (PFD). In addition to a PFD, all paddle boarders must wear a leash (no, not a dog leash, a SUP leash).
4) All paddlers must complete this safety waiver.
5) As a dog-friendly event, we expect all our fantastic dog owners to clean up after their pups and keep our surroundings neat and clean.

Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm
Aug 10 – Aug 12 all-day
Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm | Waldoboro | Maine | United States

How does a weekend with your pals spent throwing axes, foraging for cocktails, playing barn games & cruising the Maine coast sound? Yeah, that’s what we thought. We have an epic weekend planned for our 2nd annual Adult Summer Camp weekend and hope you and your pals can join us. Let’s just break down the itinerary for you and we’ll see how fast you can herd that group of friends you have together and claim your spots!

Friday Night — We are putting together a ridonkulas welcome cornucopia at the campsites…a cured meats/local cheese/dippy-things bonanza and of course accompanied by adult beverages. Camp fires, s’mores & perhaps a ghost story or two will cap the evening off. (cue starry skies, the smell of pine and deliciously comfy bedding).

Saturday — Kick the day off with an open fire breakfast, enjoyed family style in the middle of the woods with cider mimosas, and make plans for the day. Yoga in the yurt? Hiking? Naps? Or yes, all three. Take the day to explore this special area in Maine’s mid-coast — we can hook you up with suggestions and optional custom services for the day! Just ask.

Saturday Night — Put on your walkin’ shoes. We’ll be moving through the different magical spots at Tops’l Farm for a progressive and locally sourced meal — starting at the barn with lawn games & cocktails — finishing at the campground for desert and more good times.

Sunday — Bloody Marys at the barn on your way out with optional archery school to cap off the weekend.

Cost: $499/person for a shared cabin — includes breakfasts & dinners and accommodations. Some activities included – others are a la cart.
