When you join Inwood Canoe Club, you’re entering a new realm of adventure, exploration and friendship. We are a diverse bunch of “Turtles” (our nickname for ourselves) that come from a variety of professions and paddling experience. What unites us is our love for water, the environment, conservation, and developing our skills.

Members are expected to volunteer regularly to support the club’s public programs, fix up and clean up the grounds, boats, and equipment, and to develop their personal paddling skills. Members are able to participant in classes and journeys that are only open to the club, and to use club boats and equipment.

If you are interested in membership, please fill out this online form, and drop a note to Be sure to come by and help out at our Open House program a few times and get to know the club members, especially our Senior members. Membership applications are evaluated at the end of the summer, and invitations to join are extended by September.
