Ceyana Canoe Club


Ceyana volunteers organize trips ranging from local, easy paddles, to extended trips and whitewater excursions. We encourage early contact with the trip coordinator to ensure that a trip will not be cancelled for lack of interest, or be over subscribed. Sometimes, club trips are organized just a few days before departure as opportunities and interest dictate. Check the tripping calendar often and watch your email for new trips. 

Organize a Trip of YOUR OWN!

Ceyana is always looking for more people to organize trips. If you have a trip in mind, work with the Tripping Chair to have it added as an official club trip. You don't necessarily need to lead the on-water portion of the trip--the Tripping Chair can help you find someone to fill that role. 

All club trips must be approved by the club (usually by the Tripping Chair) and participants must be current members of the Ceyana Canoe Club.

    • Gregg Lake campground, loops B/C

     The Wildhay is a beautiful little river that offers intermediate level whitewater runs and some awesome lakes to for those more interested in the flatwater experience, making this a trip for all types of paddlers (M. Lund, Mark's Guide for Alberta Paddlers). 

    The Wildhay is close to William Switzer Park, northwest of Hinton. We will be camping in the Gregg Lake campground at the north end of the park in loops B and C (note, B has power). Booking for those dates opens March 5.

    • Milk River

    There will be more information available as this trip gets closer. However, the Bow Waters Canoe Club does a Milk River trip in southern Alberta quite regularly, inviting Ceyana members to join in.

    Milk river does require, especially the middle runs, some modest river/WW skills.   Rocks need to dodged, eddies entered and exited smartly, corners stayed to the inside.  This river is a step up from the Pembina above Hwy #16.

    Gold Springs park is a spectacular site, and Bow Waters books a back corner so you're staying with just paddlers!  One evening is usually a pot luck supper... a reason to go all on its own.

    If this sounds like your kind of trip, pencil it into your calendar now!  Note one extra day has been appended on both sides, camping available from June 30 to Jul 5 now.

    We are looking for a Ceyana member to help coordinate with Don at Bow Waters.

    Leila has done some early-season organizing and this trip to an iconic Canadian Rockies lake is currently full. However, you may add yourself to a waiting list if you want to attend. The time of the trip will be dependent upon one of us being able to book those days.

    More details about this trip will be available in the New Year, including dates (mid-August). Bow Waters Canoe Club in Calgary (https://www.bowwaters.org/) is planning a trip on the North Saskatchewan, based out of Nordegg. This trip will be suitable for members with river/whitewater experience.
