PCC Goes On Trips!
The Philadelphia Canoe Club takes trips all over - locally, the US, Canada, and points further abroad..All trips are open to anyone, as long as they can paddle safely with us!
If you want to come along with us, feel free to find a trip you are interested in, and contact the person in charge of the event. In some cases, you can even sign up for the trip online. If you have questions about what you need for a specific trip, see the trip description, and consider contacting the listed contact for the event
In addition to one-and multi-day trips, there are short paddles leaving from the Club on a number of Wednesdays and Thursdays in the late afternoon. Non-members are welcome and equipment is available for rental. Check the list for dates, and—as for all trips—contact the leader in advance.
Whitewater canoeing and kayaking requires training, and some specialized safety gear. To come along on one of our whitewater trips, you will need to have taken some previous training, either from one of our courses, or elsewhere. Skill level may also be a factor, as more difficult sections may require more training or experience. If you want to join us, and are just starting out, contact us about some training. If you have experience, and think you'd like to join a trip, contact the leader of that trip, to make sure the trip is a good fit for your skill level.
To join us.. Contact the trip leader for the trip event you are interested in joining. Trip leaders MUST be contacted by all participants prior to event. You can NOT just show up at the put-in.
Meet at the club on Wednesday's at approximately 5pm to paddle the Schyulkill from Flatrock Dam to the Club. Participation requires that you have taken a class with us or have successfully paddled whitewater with us in the past.
Typically we start doing Wednesday night Flatrock paddles on the first wednesday after Memorial Day, and end them the Last Wednesday before Labor day.
You don't need to have your own gear, you can rent gear and a boat for $10.
Non ACA members will need to pay additional $5.

Please Note:This document represents one person's opinions about the character and difficulty of some of the rivers frequently paddled by the Philadelphia Canoe Club. It is emphatically NOT a guide, but more a grouping of relative difficulty using the writer's subjective interpretation of the AWA River Classification Scale.
The following rivers are rated on the AWA rating scale. This scale can be accessed through the AWA website AWA.org. If the numbers don't mean anything to you, it is a good idea to check in with local paddlers to get an idea of what you might be getting involved in. Streams within about 2 hours of Philadelphia may have a brief comment attached; out of state streams are indicated.
