Family Paddling



CCA offers paddling trips that are suitable for families with kids of all ages.  These are shown on the Trip Schedule in a pink box.  If your kids paddle easy whitewater, trips shown in light blue, Class I/II, may be suitable as well.

In addition to CCA trips, one of our members has a website focused on canoeing with kids. Family Canoeing Around Washington, DC.


For more information on family paddling with CCA contact Miki Komlosh.
