Adrenalin-fueled whitewater, serene mountain lakes, meandering rivers – the inland northwest has it all, and the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club offers the perfect way to experience all of them. Dedicated to promoting paddling of all types – canoes, kayaks (whitewater, sea, recreational) rafts, even paddle boards – the SCKC welcomes all paddlers of non-motorized craft.
If you’re new to our area, check out our calendar for an idea of the kinds of group adventures we offer. You’re welcome to join us on a Wednesday evening whitewater paddle or a Thursday evening flat water paddle to get a taste of the activities we offer. Check the calendar for times and locations. Go to the “What’s New?” page to download a printable PDF of this year’s trip schedule, revised and updated as of August 4th.
Look over the paddling clinics information. One of the SCKC’s goals is to promote the knowledge and basic skills necessary to be safe on the water and to ensure a positive paddling experience. Each summer our clinics provide paddlers an opportunity to train with ACA certified instructors to learn basic canoe and kayak skills. These classes are structured both for new boaters and for those wanting to brush up on their skills. You must be a member of SCKC to participate in these clinics. Pre-registration is required.
Once you see the fun and friends that await you on the water with the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club you’ll want to join. It’s quick and easy!
