The 2012 annual sojourn will be held on the Frankstown/Little Juniata Branches and will be held from June 15 to 20.
Registrations are closed, except for the one day trip on Tuesday June 19, 2012.

The sojourn not only offers a great week of paddling but also presents a chance to celebrate our river communities! You learn about local history and current river conservation projects. Even if you are not an experienced paddler, but want to join in on the fun, you can attend the daily and nightly programs which are all open to the public!
