    Come on down to the clubhouse and jump in a dragon boat!  If you've ever had an interest in paddling one of these big dragon boats now's your chance.  We'll have paddlers on hand to get you outfitted with paddles and PFDs and get you out in a dragon boat paddling on the beautiful Gorge waterway. 

    The first two sessions in the dragon boat are free to non-members.

    Please RSVP as space is limited!

    • VCKC Clubhouse

    Each spring, on the 4th Saturday in April,  the club organizes and executes a Shoreline Clean-up of the Gorge Waterway adjacent to the clubhouse.  This year marks the 20th anniversary of this event.  

    Many hands make light work.  Spend Saturday morning in a Voyageur spotting and removing trash in and around the Gorge. We paddle the shoreline and pick up any garbage/debris we find.

    Dress to be muddy.   A chance to really fill those big canoes with freight!
