Senior Adult Adventure Program

Age requirements: 55+ years

Designed for older adults who aren’t quite ready for the rocking chair, come relive your adventurous youth or learn a new activity! A different adventure is offered each month; all trips will depart from the Georgetown Recreation Center.

To register or for more information, please contact Robert Staton at 512-930-1367 or robert.staton@georgetown.org.

Please register early – spaces are limited! A course will be canceled if it has not met the minimum number of participants three days prior to the start date.

Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and closed-toe shoes. Please do not wear loose fitting clothing, including baggy sleeves, necklines, necklaces or bracelets. Instruction, bows, arrows and targets will be provided.

River Kayaking

Spend the day kayaking on the San Marcos River. Kayaks, paddles, life vests and instruction will be provided. Be sure to bring sunscreen, full water bottle, hat, sunglasses, and a sack lunch. We’ll enjoy our lunches along the way and stop for supper (please bring money) on our way home. Actual float location, distance and duration will depend on the water conditions. Depart from the Georgetown Recreation Center.

Participants must take Beginner Kayaking in April or have previously attended an all-day kayaking trip with Georgetown Parks and Recreation before attending this trip. 

Participants will not be permitted to register for both River Kayaking dates due to registration limitations.
