Symposium Highlights

A wealth of fun and learning awaits you at the Door County Sea Kayak Symposium. You'll find a wide range of activities to choose from, including on-water classes for all skill levels, on-land workshops, and a wide range of paddling tours. Read all about them under the Classes & Tours section.

Community Meals
One of the things that sets our symposium apart is the community we build. Part of that happens at the group meal each day. Share stories from the day with fellow paddlers at the Friday and Saturday dinners and Sunday lunch. These meals are included in the days for which you are registered.
