Volunteer coaches must have a valid NJ fishing license

Special Information: Picatinny Arsenal is an active military installation. Bring a photo ID and the vehicle you identified during registration for base access, then follow HOW event signs. A light breakfast will be provided during registration before we launch kayaks and later in the day lunch will be provided by our friends at American Heroes Smokehouse BBQ. Our events are rain or shine, and will only be canceled in the event of weather too dangerous to fish in. You will be notified if the event is cancelled for any reason. You may get wet during our outing. It's always a good idea to pack extra dry clothes for the way home.
Our volunteers are excited to put on a great event for our servicemembers and their families; if you can no longer attend, please let us know so we can free up your spot for someone on our waitlist.
Picatinny Arsenal is an active military installation with strict access policies. Our event roster must be submitted a week before the event.

PET POLICY: For the safety of all of our participants and volunteers, we ask that you refrain from bringing non-service animals to our events.
FAQs
What do I need for base access?
Your photo ID (drivers license/state ID or military ID) and arrive in the vehicle you identified during your registration process so the gate guards can grant you access on post.
Do I need to have any kayaking or fishing experience?
Definitely not. Our sit-on-top kayaks are very stable and easy for beginners to use. Our volunteer coaches are great and there to help if needed. If fishing isn't really your thing you are welcome to just paddle around and enjoy the scenery.
What should I bring into the event?
Weather appropriate clothing is recommended, you may get wet while kayaking. Kayaks and all fishing tackle will be provided by volunteers.
Do I need to pack a lunch?

What should I do if I something comes up and I can no longer attend?
Please cancel your eventbrite registration or email the event coordinator as soon as you can. Our volunteers are excited to put on a great event for our servicemembers and their families; if you can no longer attend, please let us know so we can free up your spot for someone on our waitlist.
