What we're about

Edited : 10/8/2020
Originally the Milwaukee Kayaking group, I have expanded this to add other events and gatherings to hopefully keep people involved year round. Kayaking, snowshoeing, hikes, spooky trails, corn mazes, polar plunges, and things of that "nature"!

I hope all 1900+ members are still willing (and wanting) to get out and explore Southeast Wisconsin, because there ARE plenty of beautiful things to see that are just a short drive away.

Original Milwaukee Kayaking Group synapses below:

This group is for anyone that wants to kayak or canoe. It's more fun to go out with someone than to go alone. Also, it's safer and smarter.

If you have an idea for an outing, please message me, and I will make you an event sponsor!

If you bring a guest, YOU are responsible for the guest.

YOU must have proper equipment. Life Vest, Kayak, Paddle, etc. We are not a rental company, we are just a group of people that like to get together and paddle.

If you don't have the equipment, there are several places in the Milwaukee area that rent, but please note we are NOT affiliated with any of these, I am just providing these for your info:

ClearWater Outdoors:

And lastly, I hate to have to even say this, but please only join our group if you agree with the following Lability Waiver:

Waiver of Liability

This agreement releases Milwaukee Area Kayakers from all liability relating to injuries that may occur. By signing this agreement, I agree to hold Milwaukee Area Kayakers entirely free from any liability, including financial responsibility for injuries incurred, regardless of whether injuries are caused by negligence.

I also acknowledge the risks involved in kayaking. These include but are not limited to drowning, getting lost, boat damage, etc… I swear that I am participating voluntarily, and that all risks have been made clear to me. Additionally, I do not have any conditions that will increase my likelihood of experiencing injuries while engaging in this activity.

By signing below I forfeit all right to bring a suit against Milwaukee Area Kayakers for any reason. In return, I will receive membership. I will also make every effort to obey safety precautions as listed in writing and as explained to me verbally. I will ask for clarification when needed.

I, _____________, fully understand and agree to the above terms.
