Learn to Kayak, Canoe, or Stand-up Paddleboard

A teaching tradition for over forty years, the Philadelphia Canoe Club offers training in many forms of paddling by our Certified American Canoe Association Instructors. You may choose canoeing, kayaking or Stand-Up Paddleboarding in either quiet flatwater or exciting whitewater. There is no experience necessary and you do not need your own equipment, we have boats for all our classes, paddleboards too. We offer kayak rolling sessions throughout the winter and warm-up classes to prepare you for the spring paddling season. Our season begins in April with an Instruction Fair where you will meet our instructors and have an opportunity to see our fleet.
