The primary purpose of the Whitman College Whitewater Club is to provide opportunities for the Whitman community to connect to the sports of whitewater kayaking, canoeing, and rafting, to provide the skills and training necessary to participate in said activities in a safe and productive way. One of our goals is to expose the Whitman community to the whitewater community in general. The club's primary activities are intermediate and advanced trips (going beyond what students would be exposed to through WCOP trips), but it also conducts activities regarding river access, conservation, and ecology. In addition, we bring whitewater-related movies and speakers to campus. All students of Whitman College interested in the Whitewater Club are invited to become members. In order to become a member, you just have to come to at least one meeting and join our ListServ. By joining the ListServ, you will get emails about trips, outings, events, meetings, special announcements, etc. Members are encouraged to come to open kayak hours and weekly polo games at the BFFC pool.
