About Us

about us group

The Pikes Peak Whitewater Club is a kayak-oriented whitewater club based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We've been around since 1975. A few of our founding members are still paddling with us today.

We want to foster an enthusiastic group of paddlers and be the place to meet others who enjoy kayaking and exploring Colorado's exciting whitewater rivers. We like sharing hidden river gems, camping areas, adventure destinations, and of course, stories. We’ll be paddling and playing somewhere, in something–canoe, kayak, raft, or ducky.

There's wide range of talent and experience and all are welcome. So, please, come join the fun!

Check out this year's calendar.
