Fall Trip 2016

Hello friends,

We’re still over a month away, but its already time to start getting pumped about Fall Trip 2016! On September 23-25th (4th weekend) the Carleton University Kayak Club is hosting its semi annual trip to the Ottawa River for a weekend of whitewater kayaking.

The rapid section of the Ottawa river is one of the worlds best locations for whitewater kayaking as it is very beginner friendly. Fall trip is not only beginner friendly, but geared toward beginners. Even if you have never sat in a kayak before you are welcome to sign up for this awesome trip! We will be joined by world class kayaking instructors who will teach all the basics of the sport and who will ensure you have a fun and safe descent down the river. Kayaks and gear will be provided!

Advanced paddlers; we also want (and need) you! If you’re down to help lead, instruct, or be available to help with rescue that would be fantastic. You can also just show up and show off all your fancy moves to impress beginners and get them stoked.

Novice and intermediate paddlers; you’re also invited! Fall trip is a great opportunity to work on your skills in a river surrounded by tons of paddlers who will help you out.

Also, you do not have to be a university student to join us on this trip. Community members are always welcome.

We will be camping at River Run Rafting. Food will be provided by your lovely executives and volunteers. Campfires and sing alongs will definitely be happening, and on the Friday night we will be joined by the Parks Canada Outdoors Club of Carleton (PCOCC) who will be rafting during the day on Saturday. Its sure to be a good time!

Registration will open on our website at http://cukc.ca/fall-trip-2016-signup on SEPTEMBER 6TH and will close on SEPTEMBER 17TH! Don’t miss out on this great weekend. Its the perfect way to get started in an amazing sport, make tons of new friends, and start the school year off with a bang.

More info on pricing, what to bring, camping gear, and transportation will be disclosed in the near future. If you have any questions you may contact us at events@cukc.ca or contact one of your executives. Be sure to join our mailing list at http://cukc.ca/join-cukc

In the meantime you can join our Facebook Event to let us know if your coming.


We hope to see you come out!
