Mark your calendars for the 21st Annual Moraine State Park Regatta - August 3rd & 4th, 2019

SummersCool

The 2019 Moraine State Park Regatta announces an expanded version of the SummersCool Eco-Recreational Area. The SummersCool area has been part of the Regatta since 2014 and provides free demos of land and lake activities led by expert instructors and outfitters. These mini-outings give visitors a taste of all the exciting opportunities Lake Arthur has to offer.

Our hope is that, after “passing" SummersCool, participants will return to Moraine State Park to practice their new skills and become regular visitors of this regional resource. These eco-recreational opportunities are great for all ages, and we believe you’re never too old to learn a new skill!

Thanks to a new sponsorship with L.L.Bean, more of these activities will be available to the public at this year’s Regatta than ever before. The L.L.Bean S’more Out of Summer Tour will be offering paddle sport demonstrations, hiking and birdwatching tours, campfire cooking clinics and fly-casting lessons. These demos will extend SummersCool into a weekend-long event and provide visitors with even more opportunities to engage with the park.
