The Dogwood Canoe & Kayak Club is a group of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities who share a love of paddling, the outdoors and a respect for the environment.

We paddle solo and tandem canoes and kayaks on flat water, moving water, white water, oceans, estuaries, lakes, and ponds. A number of our members sail canoes. Organized trips are planned from March to November. In the winter months you will find many of us skiing the hills or at the pool trying to nail that roll.

While there are many planned club trips there are also many more almost spur-of-the-moment outings at the mercy of tides and weather.  Check the Calendar page to view the current list of trips and current contact information.

The club has a group site on Facebook that is open to the public and is a great place to view and store club photos from past trips and to stay up to date. If you have a Facebook account, please log in and then simply type “Dogwood Canoe and Kayak Club” in the box titled Search for People, Places and Things.

Monthly Club Meeting

Except for a summer hiatus all our meetings start at 7:45 on the fourth Wednesday of the month.  They always take place at the Wesburn Community Centre 4781 Parkwood Ave., Burnaby, BC.

  

CLUB MEETING ALERT!  This is just a friendly reminder that our monthly Dogwood meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 28, '16 at the Wesburn Community Centre in Burnaby. The meeting starts at 7:45 p.m., to be followed by an intermission.

 
Franz Vanlakerveld has kindly offered to present the entertainment section of our meeting...."Walking on Water". A Bowron Lake winter expedition. Going back to 1968, following the exploits of three Dogwoodies as they battle snow and ice on the Bowron Lake chain.

 

  • DID YOU KNOW THIS?!  In 2014, the Dogwood Canoe and Kayak Club ran almost 40 club trips including over 30 Wednesday paddles.  A big thanks to all the trip leaders and organizers for making that happen last year.  This year promises to be another busy paddling season for us all!  Well done everyone!
