High Rock Lake will see its first Paddlefest on Aug. 9-10 at the Salvation Army’s Camp Walter Johnson.
All funds that are raised will go to help the children that the camp serves. Camp Walter Johnson is home to 1,500- 2,000 underprivileged children each summer. Schools, Boy Scouts and other nonprofit groups also will benefit.
The two-day event will include canoe, kayak, paddleboat and cardboard boat races, along with boat demonstrations, swimming, rock wall climbing, putt-putt, peddle cars, paddleboats and more.
Sunrise and sunset excursions will be available.
Lodging with breakfast is available for a limited number.
For more information, contact Camp Walter Johnson at 336-859-2105 or Neal Conner at 336-971-1706. After June 2, the event’s Web site will be up at www.hrlpaddlefest.com.
The High Rock Lake Paddlers group is taking one of its shortest and more scenic runs of the year Saturday. The group will meet at the Bringle Ferry boat access at 8:30 a.m. to work out shuttle details. Plans are to be on the water by 9 a.m. or so for the run that should take about two hours.
