Cost:  You must be a current member of the Arkansas Canoe Club before you can register for the School of Whitewater Paddling. ACC Household Membership (covers all your immediate family living in your household) costs $25 per year (multi-year memberships are also available). If you have multiple members of your immediate family covered by a Household Membership applying for the school, only one ACC membership is required. We also offer a Junior/Student membership for those under 25 years old. If you are not already a member of the ACC, please visit the Membership section of our website.

The course fee is less this year for early registrants and more for late registrants.  Registration during March will be $80 and registrations in April will be $100.00.  The Stand Up Paddleboard class is $50.00 as it is now a one day only class on Saturday.   There will be no May or on-site registration.  Registration includes a $5 American Canoe Association event fee.

If you are a current American Canoe Association (ACA) member and can show your ACA membership card at check-in, then you are eligible for a $5 credit coupon good toward the Saturday night fish fry OR Sunday morning pancake breakfast.
