Monocacy Canoe Club Cruise Schedule

To Join a Trip....

Contact the Trip Leader during the week prior to the scheduled trip.   See contact information on schedule.   Please do NOT just show up.

For weekend camping trips and trips more than 50 miles away, it is a good idea to contact the Trip Leader by Thursday evening, as many travel to campsites near the river on Friday evening.

Notice and Assumption of Risk

Paddling can be dangerous and physically demanding.   Paddlers take personal responsibility for their safety.   By participating in Monocacy Canoe Club (MCC) activities, you acknowledge an assumption of the risks involved, which could include serious injury or death.

SCHEDULES OF OTHER PADDLING CLUBS

Trips appearing on schedules of these clubs may be open to MCC members. Check with listed trip coordinator.
