We are a recreational kayak club that allow white water kayakers within Carleton University and the community of Ottawa to connect with each other. The main goal of the club is to provide affordable and accessible kayaking to students of Carleton University. A secondary goal of CUKC is to support white water kayaking in the community; whether this is through support of other organizations or volunteering at events.
Pool sessions hosted by the Carleton University Kayak Club are a great way to satisfy the kayaking itch all the way through the winter months. Whether you're just starting out, nailing down your roll, or perfecting the next big trick the pool is the place to be.View details »
CUKC runs many events throughout the year and attends many community run events. We run major trips to the Ottawa River during the spring, summer, and fall. We attend community events such as Level Six Capital Cup and Hell or High Water. CUKC also attends many kayaking movie premiers and festivals such as the Banff Film Festival.View details »
