Membership Information

  • The OSSCC year runs from April 1 to March 31st.  Annual membership is $40, plus a one-time charge of $7 for a name tag.  Canoes, paddles, and safety equipment are provided by the club.  If you wish to bring your own canoe to any of our outings, please be aware that the Club takes no responsibility for them.


  • Canoe outings are held every Tuesday, weather permitting, as outlined in the canoe schedule.  Members meet at the canoe shed for 8:00 a.m. unless told otherwise.  At this time, members are to sign in and pay the trip fee. The trip fee is based on the distance travelled (either $6 or $9).  Canoe partners will be determined at this point. Car pooling to canoe put in point is strongly encouraged as there may not be adequate parking at either the put in or take out points.  Please remember to share the cost of gas with the driver!


  • OSSCC members may bring a guest to a canoe outing.  The member will be responsible for his/her guest.  All guests must sign a "Waiver for Non-Members" form and if the guest is a child, written consent from a parent or guardian must also be submitted.


  • All canoeists should carry a waterproof bag containing a complete change of clothing and a towel.  When in the canoe, all canoeists MUST WEAR A PFD (personal flotation device), carry a waterproof whistle and a waterproof flashlight.  None are supplied by the Club.  Also advised are the following items: hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, quick drying clothing, water shoes, raingear, drinking water and lunch.  The Club encourages those who have a cell phone to bring it on outings.


  • It is mandatory for all canoeing members to participate in skills and safe canoeing training offered by the Club to determine skill levels.


  • Participants who have known disabilities or medical problems requiring special needs MUST make provisions for these prior to Club outings.  The Club carries a First Aid kit on canoe outings.


  • On Tuesdays, club members may also hike (throughout the year), cross country ski, or snowshoe.   For these activities, meet in the lobby at 404 Wing at 9:00 a.m. (in the winter at 9:30 a.m.)
