Annual membership dues for the Rocky Mountain Canoe Club are $10 per household

To join or renew, either:

As of May 15, 2008, all water-related events and trips (except pool session) use ACA insurance. This requires each person to pay a $10 fee for each trip OR have of a current ACA membership.

For ACA members, please file the ACA annual on-line waiver so that you do not have to fill out an ACA waiver form for each event in which you participate.  Non-ACA paddlers will need to sign a paper waiver for each event. To sign the on-line ACA waiver for 2024, see below. Be sure to indicate that RMCC is your Paddle America Club (PAC) and that this is an annual waiver



The American Canoe Association is nation’s largest and most active nonprofit paddle sports organization. Today the ACA is dedicated to promoting canoeing, kayaking, and rafting as wholesome lifetime recreational activities. The ACA provides a variety of worthwhile programs and public services in such areas as: event sponsorship, safety education, instructor certification, waterway conservation, paddler’s rights and protection, and public information campaigns.

The RMCC is affiliated with the ACA through this program. This means that RMCC members are eligible for ACA Paddle America memberships. While this used to get RMCC members a discount on ACA membership, it no longer does.  All ACA memberships are now individual (i.e., no family memberships) and cost $40 per person.

NOTE: To be affiliated with the Paddle America discount, be sure to fill out the Paddle America Memberships section if you register. In the dropdown menu, “Paddle America Clubs”, choose “Rocky Mountain Canoe Club”.
