Welcome to the Houston Canoe Club (HCC). We are a group of multi-faceted canoers and kayakers who have a shared interest in all types of paddle sports that include, but are not limited to; whitewater, flat water, touring, racing and stand up paddling. We paddle the bayous, lakes, rivers, streams and Gulf shores of Texas and the United States. We offer a variety of trips including day trips, weekend trips, overnight camping trips and expedition trips.
The HCC was established in 1964 when a group of interested canoeists got together and talked of organizing a canoe club. The rest is history.
The club is run by volunteer members. Our member base consists of people of all ages and includes singles, couples and families.
We currently have about 150 members in the Houston-Galveston area and beyond.
Our trips and skill levels range from beginner to experienced, and from day trips of a few hours to week-long expeditions..
Club Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Bayland Community Center at 6400 Bissonnet, Houston, and are open to the public. At the meeting we socialize, discuss where we've paddled, review upcoming trips and have guest speakers present topics of interest to the club.
Prior to the meeting, we meet for dinner at a nearby restaurant where we visit and get to know new attendees. All guests are welcome to attend both the dinner and meeting.
August 9 HCC General Meeting
Bayland Community Center, 6400 Bissonnet St., Houston, TX
Bring your gently used boating gear, camping gear or outdoor gear to swap or sell!
Your extra Werner paddles, the Seda Glider that is burning a hole in your pocket, the REI Ultralight tent you haven't used in years, the Cast Iron skillet that is too heavy for your boat anymore, bring them all and see if they can be passed on to someone who will use them! I might bring a milk crate toilet seat or two. If you really want to unload, er, pass them on, post the items you will be bringing in the Buy/Sell/Swap forum and let's get some good stuff listed!
