The Dogwood Canoe & Kayak
Club is a group of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities who
share a love of paddling, the outdoors and a respect for the
We paddle solo and tandem canoes and kayaks on flat water,
moving water, white water, oceans, estuaries, lakes, and
ponds. A number of our members sail canoes. Organized trips
are planned from March to November. In the winter months you
will find many of us skiing the hills or at the pool trying
to nail that roll.
While there are many planned club trips
there are also many more almost spur-of-the-moment outings
at the mercy of tides and weather. Check the Calendar page
to view the current list of trips and current contact information.
