River of Life: Connecticut River Pilgrimage
May 31 – July 9, 2017

Thank you for your interest in paddling with us for at least one segment of our 40-day Pilgrimage from the Source to the Sea along the Connecticut River!  You are welcome to apply for as many segments as you wish.

For segments of the river with a limited number of participants, we will be filling those spots on a first-come, first-served basis with individuals who are eligible to join us.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and notifications will be sent within three weeks of your application submission.  Final deadline for applications is Monday, May 22nd, 2017.  All notifications will be made by the end of May 2017.

The cost of paddling as part of the River of Life Pilgrimage is $120 per day (which includes 24-hour professional guide service, three meals + snacks, lodging, support vehicle + staff, and other incidentals).  This fee is to be paid in full in order for your application to be considered; however, if you are applying to paddle for a week or longer, please contact us about an appropriate down-payment and individual payment plan.  If the cost is prohibitive when you are applying, reach out to Jo at river@kairosearth.org to discuss support options.
