At 9 AM, we’ll begin our fun new hike/kayak circuit. Start by exploring the lakeside paths that meander along the side of Powow Hill, or Po Hill as it is known locally. This easy, guided stroll starts at the beach, goes through the beautiful mixed forest and the rolling fields of Battis Farm on the northern edge of Amesbury, before continuing on to the Camp Kent Science Center. There you will enjoy a tour of the center as well as refreshments before boarding kayaks provided by the Amesbury Youth Program, and enjoy a scenic paddle along the Powow River before returning to the beach. Groups of 12 will be leaving the beach on the hour. Tours will be at 10 AM, 11:30 AM, and 1 PM. 

Please register in advance by contacting or register in person the day of the event. The registration table will be open starting at 8 AM. Comfortable walking shoes and light clothing are recommended. Paddles and life vests will be provided. You may get wet during this experience, but you will have fun!
A $5 per person donation is suggested but not required. Guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to support Our Neighbor’s Table.
