Sackawa Canoe Club Capital Campaign

Originating in the 1980s, Sackawa Canoe Club’s primary focus is to provide a forum where recreational paddlers have an opportunity to develop into high performance athletes.  Sackawa offers a great summer program for both new and experienced paddlers, as well as a year-round fitness and training program for our competitive athletes. Sackawa has a strong youth paddling program; and providing access for adults, in our Masters Program, as well as individuals with disabilities, in our PaddleAll Program, are also both strong components of Sackawa's success.

We have outgrown our current space.  After a number of years of planning and preparation, starting March 2019 the club will begin building a new home.

Sackawa has been fundraising over the years and all levels of government have each contributed towards this $1.5 million endeavor. We are now embarking on a capital campaign to fundraise the remaining $250,000 needed to achieve our goal.

Join us on this journey and together we will make this dream a reality!
