• ACC Membership

    We invite you to join the Arkansas Canoe Club to add your voice and support to the many events and activities that the Arkansas Canoe Club is involved with.  A membership covers everyone in the household.  

    • Social networking: The ACC provides a huge network of paddlers from throughout Arkansas and beyond. Get to know paddlers like yourself who share your interests...whether that is steep creek whitewater, canoe camping, leisurely exploring swamps and lakes, or a little bit of everything!

    • Instruction: The ACC provides instruction in skills and safety for all aspects of paddling, from our weekend-long Schools of Whitewater Paddling and River Paddling, to clinics on Swift Water Rescue. Our Education Committee works to provide quality training of American Canoe Association-certified instructors in Arkansas so that we have a highly qualified cadre of instructors to provide both formal and informal instruction.

    • Conservation: The ACC is highly active in issues which affect the health and natural beauty of streams in Arkansas and beyond. We work with a number of other conservation and environmental organizations and both state and federal government agencies to support projects and policies which aid in the preservation the waters of Arkansas. We also work to maintain open access to our rivers and streams by working with private landowners, as well as state and federal agencies, to make sure these bodies of water can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to paddle them.
