KCCNY is resuming trips but it must be done in a safe and sensible manner.
Trip leaders and members should endeavor to follow federal, state, and local laws and regulations in addition to KCCNY guidelines including distancing on and off the water.
Shuttle plans should be laid out as early as possible and at least a day prior to the trip.
We expect all paddlers to participate only in trips well within their skill level and not paddle if they are not feeling healthy. Any paddler who is diagnosed with covid-19 within two weeks after a trip should notify the trip leader.

We are one of the largest whitewater clubs in the East, and despite our name, serve New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut as well as New York, where we formed in 1959. KCCNY features a whitewater paddling program with novice, intermediate, or expert trips planned for each weekend of the paddling season, though the die hards paddle year round! We run rivers from Canada to the Carolinas, with most trips within a three-hour drive of New York City.

KCCNY offers instructional opportunities for everyone from the beginner through advanced paddlers. The winter pool sessions are an excellent time for boaters to begin learning or sharpening up their Eskimo roll and strokes, which definitely makes whitewater safer and more fun.
