The purpose of the GCA is to have fun and promote safety while paddling. GCA is a member-operated canoe and kayak club with over 500 family and corporate memberships comprising more than 1500 individuals. Canoeists and kayakers of all ages and paddling abilities are equally welcome. Some of our mutual interests include whitewater river running, creeking and playboating, river and lake touring, sea kayaking, paddle campouts, competition, and racing activities. We espouse conservation, environmental and river access issues, as well as boating safety and skills development. Group paddling, training and social activities of all kinds are conducted throughout the year thanks to the volunteer efforts of our many members and friends. Membership is not limited to Georgia residents. Paddling since 1966!
