About Us

Welcome to the home page for the Desert Kayak and Canoe Club (DKCC).  This club is dedicated to those who love the water!

DKCC will foster an association of persons interested in 1) human-powered water travel (e.g.; whitewater-kayaking, sea-kayaking, canoeing, rafting), 2) increasing knowledge about paddling, and 3) helping beginners enter the sport. The club will facilitate trips and interactions between members, and provide an opportunity for learning about our sport and socializing with like-minded individuals.

Safety is key to participation in paddlesports. We encourage all members to understand and use the principles of the American Whitewater Safety Code.
