Welcome to the home of the Yukon Canoe & Kayak Club, a leader in the Yukon paddling community since 1961. Our Mission is to inspire and support Yukoners to safely paddle and responsibly explore the Yukon’s river systems. During the summer under the Midnight Sun, YCKC hosts beginner paddling programs, clinics, day trips and social weekend paddling events. During the winter, there is weekly kayak polo at the Canada Games Center pool as well as monthly skills sessions. YCKC is the Sport Governing Body for freestyle and slalom padding for the Territory.
