Club meetings are great place to meet others who enjoy kayaking. The meetings are also an opportunity to learn about kayaking and figure out what you need to start in this great recreational activity.


Meetings are held the first Monday of every even month from 6:30pm to approximately 8:00pm at Valley Wide Recreation in Mobile #1., 901 W. Esplanade Ave., San Jacinto, CA 92582. Meetings will start Monday, October 4, 2021 and will continue on the first Monday of each even month (October, December, February, April, June, and August). See meeting schedule below.

We are in the modular building behind the tennis courts.  Look for the club logo above the door.

Meetings are free and open to the public.

Become a member of the club to get a meeting reminder sent to you each month as well as updates and news about events.


2021 & 2022 Meeting Schedule:

Monday, October 4, 2021 - 6:30 pm - We have a great program for you. Our guest speaker for the evening is non other than James Hermes, the team leader of the 2021 Bow South Expedition! James will be making a presentation about his recent 12 day kayak trip in Utah down the Green River through Labyrinth, Stillwater, and Cataract Canyons. He will share some stories and photos of the ancestral Puebloan dwellings and historical sites that can be found along this river corridor. He will also be sharing information on this year’s 2021 Bow South Expedition that will begin at South Cove near the western mouth of the Grand Canyon and end almost 500 miles south in the Gulf of California. You can read about James’ upcoming 2021 Bow South Expedition on

Rather than hold a meeting the first Monday of every month at 6:30 pm, we decided to hold bi-month meetings on the even numbered months ( February - month 2, April - month 4, June - month 6, August - month 8, October - month 10, December Holiday party - month 12). This will make for less trips for members and less preparation for board members.

Monday, December 6, 2021 - 6:00 pm VWKC Holiday Potluck Party - Club will provide main dish, members bring side dishes & a fun gift for gift exchange.

Monday, February 7, 2022 - 6:30 pm - cancelled due to concern over Covid-19

Monday, April 4, 2022 - 6:30 pm - Do you have an extra kayak, paddle or other kayak accessories you'd like to sell? Are you a new paddler looking for an inexpensive kayak, paddle or other kayak gear? Do you have an extra tent or other camping items to sell? Then come on down to our next Valley Wide Kayak Club meeting with your kayaking/camping items to sell or come with some extra cash to make a deal on Monday, April 4, 2022 at 6:30 pm.

Our meeting is held at Valley-Wide Recreation & Sports District, 901 W. Esplanade Ave. San Jacinto in the modular building behind the tennis court. Take the west driveway to the ballfield parking lot and park close to the modular building.

Each person with things to sell will place their sale items on a table in the front of the room and have a chance to describe them. After the meeting, members will wheel and deal on items they like!

Monday, June 6, 2022 - 6:30 pm
