What we're about

The Champaign Ski and Adventure Club is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to making the joys of outdoor adventure available year-round to those of us living in Central Illinois. The Club is open to all individuals and families who enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing, kayaking, canoeing, camping and group adventure travel to distant lands. Seasonal activities include skiing in winter, kayaking and biking in spring, motorboat and farm parties in summer, and golf outings and camping in fall. The Club's activities encompass all age levels. If you like outdoor adventure, this club is for you!

While participation in many Club activities is open to the general public, paid membership is required for certain other events, e.g., ski trips and house parties. See the Club's online membership application form if you are interested in becoming a paid member.

Annual Campout at Illini State Park

Needs a location

Join us for a weekend of camping in Marseilles, IL. We will kayak, canoe, bike, hike, and enjoy time around the campfire.

Campers are responsible for reserving their own campsite.

If you're not into camping, other lodging options are available nearby.

Those who don't wish to stay overnight in the area are welcome to make it a day-trip and participate in daily group activities.

Paddling options including Big Bureau Creek, the DuPage River, the Marge Cline Whitewater Course, and others rivers.

The Illinois and Michigan Canal State Trail is a favorite bicycling destination.

Explore on your own if you choose. Enjoy nearby historic river towns, restaurants, museums, parks, etc. We will be within a few miles of Starved Rock State Park and Matthiessen State Park.
