Kayaking - hiking - picnic at MacArthur Beach State Park

  • 23 Aug 2015
  • 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • MacArthur Beach State Park, West Palm Beach


Registration is closed
Please join us for a fun day of kayaking, hiking and a picnic lunch at MacArthur Beach State Park in Palm Beach County.  Kayak rental and other information is at

We'll meet in the morning at the Nature and Welcome Center - no later than 9:00 am. If you need to rent a kayak, please arrive no later than 8:30 am because this is a very popular location.

* IF THE WEATHER LOOKS STORMY on Sunday morning, please call Barbara Junge at (305) 992-7037 to see if we have cancelled the event.

For those who are bringing their own kayak, make a left turn just before the Nature Center parking lot and you will launch your kayak from that location.

After everyone has their kayaks in the water, we'll paddle to a swimming area on the Intracoastal Waterway, have our picnic lunch there, and then paddle back around noon or 1:00. After paddling, or as an alternative, folks can walk (15 minutes) or take a tram ride across a boardwalk to the oceanfront beach.

This is a very family-friendly event - the Park has a playground, lots of beaches and picnic areas.

If you have questions, please write to our event coordinator: Robert Graulich (Malawi '64-'68, PCHQ '71-'75, Malaysia PCD '75-'78) at
