Our Club was founded in 1976 as the Greater Baltimore Canoe Club and over the past 36+ years has supported paddlers of all stripes - whitewater, flatwater, seakayers, canoe campers, you name it - and been a voice for watersports and river conservation. Our sport in all its forms has changed a lot over almost four decades, and so we've recently decided to change our name - to the Baltimore Canoe & Kayak Club!
Along with that, we've redesigned our website and hope that you'll continue to find it a useful resource for connecting with fellow paddlers and advancing the sport we all enjoy so much. Comments and suggestions are always welcome: Just email our webmaster.
