Trips must be done in a Covid safe and sensible manner.
Trip coordinators and members should endeavor to follow federal, state, and local laws and regulations in respect to Covid including distancing on and off the water and mask wearing whenever practical.
Shuttle plans should be laid out as early as possible.
Participate in trips well within your skill level and only if you are feeling healthy.
We expect paddlers to participate in contact tracing. Paddlers diagnosed with Covid within 2 weeks after a trip or who learn they were in contact with someone who was diagnosed within 2 weeks previous to a trip should notify the trip coordinator.

We are one of the largest whitewater clubs in the East, and despite our name, serve New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut as well as New York, where we formed in 1959. KCCNY features a whitewater paddling program with novice, intermediate, or expert trips planned for each weekend of the paddling season, though the die hards paddle year round! We run rivers from Canada to the Carolinas, with most trips within a three-hour drive of New York City.

KCCNY offers instructional opportunities for everyone from the beginner through advanced paddlers. The winter pool sessions are an excellent time for boaters to begin learning or sharpening up their Eskimo roll and strokes, which definitely makes whitewater safer and more fun.
