This MeetUp site is intended to share info about RACCC, and to encourage interested paddlers in the Ottawa area to join the RACCC.
Note: Go to www.raccc.ca official membership page, to join the RACCC ! Then....come paddle with us!
Ottawa is in the middle of canoeing paradise! Beautiful parks like Gatineau, Algonquin, La Verendrye, Frontenac, Mattawa and Bon Echo as well as the Ottawa, Madawaska, Petawawa, Rideau Rivers (and many other) are all within a short drive. Come and explore these and other wonderful wilderness areas with us!
The RACCC has over 300 members of all ages and skill levels collaboratively host hundreds of trips, training and social events during the paddling season and throughout the year! YCCC trips and training are for beginners through advanced paddlers interested in flatwater (lake) or whitewater (river) paddling. Last year, we held 250 club events!
The RA Canoe Camping Club (RACCC) has a legacy of canoe tripping expertise! Friendship, volunteerism, safety, environmentally friendly camping and car pooling have been RACCC hallmarks since 1952. TheRACCCis volunteer run, providing club members with the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of the club, to learn new skills as well as meet many other canoeists and outdoor enthusiasts. We run co-operative trips where everyone gets involved which allows us to keep costs down. Club members enjoy a range of relaxed evening paddles, day trips and weekends to extended wilderness expeditions.
