Canoe Cruisers helps paddlers get together for mutually arranged cooperative adventures to explore local lakes, rivers and streams. You can share in a trip a couple of ways; either by joining a Scheduled Trip or going on a Pick Up Trip. Please see the Calendar Page and the Messages Board, respectively for this information.
Note: All trips coordinated by the club are informal get togethers for interested paddlers. We do not offer formal guided trips for individuals, groups, corporate outings, etc. We do not provide equipment nor do we do trip planning for private trips. There are local commercial outfitters who provide such. Please see our Links page for their contact information. See Trip Guidelines for a detailed description about trips coordinated through the club.
Club members volunteer to coordinate outings throughout the year. Paddlers of all levels will be able to find outings that suit their skill level.
See the Calendar page for a listing of these trips for the next several weeks.
You must have your own equipment and the appropriate skills for the rated trip difficulty. If you enjoy the trip, please consider joining the club. You can download our membership form, or contact us for more information.
Members and guests who join a Scheduled Trip acknowledge they have reviewed and agree to the provisions found in our Trip Guidelines.
When it starts to rain and that favorite river is rising, use the Internet to find others to put together a last minute trip. Local paddlers meet, plan trips and share tips on the Canoe Cruisers Association Message Board and the Monocacy Canoe Club Message Board.
Charlie Duffy's Trip Leader presentation has a wealth of information for paddlers who are new to trip leading and would like to coordinate a CCA trip.
