The RACCC runs a flatwater, a family, and a whitewater program, offering a complete range of activities designed for novice through experienced paddlers. Activities include evening paddles, day trips, weekend trips and extended trips. In addition, the club offers an extensive training program. Updated information about the most recent trips and activities offered in these programs can be found online through the website calendar and forums.
RACCC trips are run in a cooperative manner, with a volunteer trip leader and members pitching in. Unlike guided trips, members work together to choose the route, select gear, plan and prepare meals (for multi-day trips), and confirm camp setup.
For any trip, members can use their own canoe or rent one of the RACCC's canoes. While the club has a limited number of paddles and PFDs (personal flotation devices), it is important to have these sized appropriately, which is why the club recommends that club members buy their own paddle and PFD. All members also require a pealess whistle (e.g. a FOX-40) and, if out after sunset, a headlamp or flashlight.
