Paddle Fest is the interactive and hands on paddling experience of the year to prepare you and your family for the next on water adventure. The event draws thousands of newbies and enthusiast from around the region to learn, share, watch and celebrate what paddling has to offer. The multiple location venues include a flat-water demo center, on water education, river competitions, multi sport races, free demos, and several other non-paddling events centered on “all ages” participation.

“Paddle Fest is proud to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chaffee County through the success of Paddle fest 2013. It is exciting to work with such a great local and national organization that shares our values of bettering our community by aiding the youth of the region. Paddle Fest has a lot to offer for the kids in Chaffee County and the Boys and Girls Club stands to benefit from the growth in this event.” Earl Richmond- Paddle Fest

The Boys & Girls Club of Chaffee County provides a safe, positive place to learn and grow, ongoing supportive relationships with caring adults and lots of fun!
While today’s youth face many challenges, Boys & Girls Clubs continue their long tradition of offering proven solutions that work. Clubs have provided youth with daily guidance-oriented character development programs, firmly establishing a reputation as “The Positive Place for Kids” where kids are encouraged to BE GREAT in a wide variety of ways. Their mission is clear: Build upon this success to reach out and serve more youth. Our community’s future depends on it.

We will be asking for many volunteers to help.” Karen Dils, Board President
