To provide an Erie Canal experience to as many people as possible, Corn Hill Navigation is partnering with Boys and Girls Clubs of Rochester and the city of Rochester’s Department of Youth and Recreation Services to provide four educational cruises for up to 100 area youth.
The educational nonprofit also is donating a two-hour private charter experience to two Rochester area families and up to 25 of their invited guests. To enter the contest, email a favorite Sam Patch memory or what a private cruise would mean for the family to, or post on social media using the hashtag #ReconnectOnTheCanal. Entries are due July 31.
Tickets for public cruises can be purchased at or the Schoen Place ticket booth. Adult tickets for a 90-minute cruise are $20, with discounted prices for seniors, students and children. Visit for information.
