Willamette Kayak and Canoe Club


When you join the WKCC, you have the opportunity to paddle with skilled boaters with many years of experience. On-the-water training and practice with experienced boaters is the best and fastest way to improve your skills and stay safe. There is nothing like the thrill and camaraderie of paddling for building long-lasting friendships. You're likely to meet others in your area to enjoy your local waters with often. Club trips are led by experienced boaters on waters they know well. Paddling new waters is a blast, and you'll rapidly improve your skills in the process. Safety Weekend is available only to members and will teach you the crucial skills for safe paddling and water rescue.

Starting primarily as a ski club, Altair Ski & Sports Club, the first meeting of ALTAIR SKI & SPORTS CLUB was held on March 11, 1987 with twenty-three members. Altair has since expanded to include year-round outdoor and indoor activities, including skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, bowling, volleyball, golf, and rafting. In addition to sports activities, Altair sponsors a wide variety of social events and out-of-town trips, including barbeques, card games, ballroom dance lessons, and theatre and dinner parties. We also actively contribute to community service projects, including fund-raisers for such groups as Food for Lane County and Relay for Life. Altair is an all-volunteer army of dedicated members working to have fun. All activities come from the ideas and efforts of our members. From event leaders to activity directors to the Altair board of directors, all are volunteers.
Our annual dues and any revenue gained through activities or other sources go to pay for club expenses such as meetings, activities, insurance, accounting, etc.

Oregon Whitewater Association

Boaters who want the camaraderie of running rivers together, to meet new river friends, and to learn new skills.

  • All river users: rafters, kayakers, canoeists, both private and commercial, as well as river managers and employees of managing agencies.

  • Everyone with a love of rivers and river recreation and with an interest in river conservation, river navigability and river access issues.

The Oregon Whitewater Association is committed to working with other river organizations and river agencies in a cooperative manner to enhance river recreational opportunities for non-motorized river users. Although this is a Portland based club, people from around the state and the country are encouraged to join our non-profit, recreational organization. Officers will be elected by the entire membership to directly serve all members, no separate chapters will be formed. Input from the members regarding river issues will be actively sought by the OWA officers.

We have an Annual River Trip Schedule schedule with some of our favorites that we run every year. The OWA Newsletter and website will provide stories about river trips, river preservation and other river issues. Information and discussions about river management issues will be closely monitored by OWA and will be reported in the newsletter.
