Ceyana Canoe Club

Trips

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.

    An event put on by the Alberta Whitewater Association in the southern part of the province. Come paddle 3 different rivers, and join in the fun of the event.

    For more information and to register go to the Alberta Whitewater Association website:

    As of March 9, event details and registration have yet to be posted and opened.   We expect to have a Ceyana Contingent and both our President <president@ceyana.ca> and Ed. Chair <education@ceyana.ca> are expecting to go so a note to either should provide further details and help to coordinate our travel and club boat needs.

    This is primarily a whitewater event for kayakers and canoeists.   There is a couple of easier runs that we can do if we have a number of newish WW paddlers... both very good training runs!  An for us old WW dogs there are a number of challenging runs... there will be swims and everyone should be prepared for both cold water and inclement weather.

    Registration includes breakfasts and suppers for two days, and the event is hosted at the Castle Rodeo grounds... a great facility and event for camping, day tripping out of, and meeting paddlers from all over the province!

    The Wildhay is a little river that offers one run of great whitewater for intermediate paddlers, runs for novice paddlers to learn on, and some fine scenic foothills tripping on other reaches. (M. Lund, Mark's Guide for Alberta Paddlers). 

    There will also be some awesome lakes to paddle for those not interested in the whitewater experience. The Wildhay is close to William Switzer Park and we could be camping in the last campground before exiting the park. Thus making this a trip for all types of paddlers.

    The Milk River is a fun little river way in the south part of Alberta. Bow Waters Canoe Club has invited us to paddle with them on the long weekend in July--Canada Day. They have a group booking in Gold Springs Park and will be running day trips down river between the campground and Writing on Stone Provincial Park.  Only a couple of 15 amp RV sites left, lots of room for tents and RV boondocking.  Picnic Shelter for the group.  Saturday evening "Pot Luck" supper is planned.  Camp fees are reasonable, TBA, and payable on arrival at the campground.

    Please contact Mark Lund <president@ceyana.ca> for more info and to register for a camping spot:

    Come for the mountain scenery and fun paddling on fast flowing, clear running water. Rapids are Class 1 to III+, depending on the reaches paddled. There could also be opportunity to paddle some mountain lakes. We will try to find camping along the Bow Valley Parkway, either Protection Mountain or Castle Mountain if we can get there early enough.

    This gem of a river is often called the "weekend Nahanni" because of spectacular mountain scenery, whitewater that is the limit for open canoe tripping, waterfalls, tufa springs, and sometimes great wildlife. Although it is a long drive to get there, it's worth it. We'll put in at Settlers Crossing and paddle to the White River. We may camp at McLeod Meadows on Friday evening so a park pass may come in handy.

    This is a trip for competent white water paddlers with some class 3 sections, continuous white water and spectacular scenery. We'll camp at the confluence of the Cardinal River on the Forestry Truck Road South of Edson and do day trips. It involves a 1 km portage to get to the river.
