Adventure is not in the guidebooks
and beauty is not on the maps
This is a common saying at Calleva, and our adventures take us to wild spaces all over our region (& continent!) But our main operational hubs are listed below.
Our business office is co-located with Calleva’s Farm Store & River Store in historic downtown Poolesville, MD. Stop in to shop for the latest & greatest in kayaking gear (including boats, paddles & clothing), delicious baked goods & local products sourced from Calleva Farm & other local producers.
Located in the heart of Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve, Calleva Farm hosts equestrian programs, nature immersion experiences for elementary age children, and Calleva’s farm-to-table operations, including weekly Pizza Nights & Tastes of Calleva, a one-night only field-to-plate adventure.
The Farm also hosts some summer camp experiences as well as Markoff’s Haunted Forest, an iconic (& terrifying) fall event that draws fans from all over the Mid-Atlantic.
Calleva River School makes its home on the banks of the Potomac River inside the boundaries of the C&O Canal National Park. This location is the launch space for many of our weekend paddle sport lessons & excursions, as well as many of Calleva’s summer camp groups.
The River School’s seasonal office is open May-October.
Calleva’s Virginia programs are hosted at the Madeira School campus in McLean, Virginia. This location is home to our VA summer camps as well as school & group programs on our state-of-the-art aerial course.
Calleva Trough Outfitters
A scenic 2.5 hour drive from DC, CTO occupies a beautiful spot in West Virginia. From here, Calleva outfits families & groups to paddle or float down the South Branch of the Potomac River. We’ve got the gear you need to create a weekend adventure that suits your timeline & goals.
