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. 


 

Wesburn Community Center, 4781 Parkwood Ave is CLOSED. Therefore the Regular Meeting of the Dogwood Canoe and Kayak Club are SUSPENDED until further notice..

Check this site for further information. It will be updated as information becomes available.

We are sad to report the passing of Dr. Robert (Bob) Hindmarch at age 90 on February 20, '21. He and his wife Jean were long time and active members of the club - president in the 90s. He was Athletic Director of UBC for over 12 years, assistant coach of Canadian hockey team at the 1964 Olympics in Innsbruck and chef de mission at Sarajevo in 1984.
