What we're about
Prairie State Canoeists (PSC) is one of the Midwest's largest paddling clubs. Most members live in the Chicagoland area and the Club is about evenly split between canoeists and kayakers. The Club sponsors over 150 trips a year (both flat water and whitewater) and most trips are within 100 miles of Chicago. Day-trips are common and multi-day trips may include camping. ACA-certified instructors conduct training classes/trips for all skill levels.
We will be posting some beginner trips/classes to our Meetup page to provide opportunities to paddle on a club trip or for a club training class -- to assess participation from Meetup members. For Meetup trips/classes, participants will need their own kayak/canoe, paddle and personal flotation device.
Check out the PSC website ( http://prairiestatecanoeists.org ) for membership information (application in FORMS tab, $20/year) and a full list of classes and trips available to PSC members (EVENT SCHEDULE tab). More trips and classes to be added over the next few months.
