Vote for the ACA Board

The ACA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the slate of nominees for the Winter 2021 Board of Directors Election. The Board is extremely grateful to the Nominating Committee for its diligent and thoughtful review of the very qualified candidates and gives thanks to all the nominees for their willingness to serve the ACA. Current ACA members are invited to cast their votes between now and December 17th: https://americancanoe.org/announcement-of-nominee-slate…/

You’ll be able to read the nominee bios on the ACA website and it is surprisingly easy to vote if you are a current ACA member.

Lake Sebago Harvest Moon Paddle

Sebago Harvest Moon Paddle 9/18~19

Sponsored by YPRC

A Harvest full moon paddle will be held at the ACA Camp at Lake Sebago. It will be either Saturday, September 18th  or on Sunday, September 19th, dependent upon the weather.

Meet at the Lake no later than 7pm to get your boat ready to go on the water. Lights and spray skirts are not required and canoes are well.

After the paddle, meet at the Hilltop cabin for a crackling fire with s’mores or other goodies you might want to bring. All types of beverages are also fine. Make sure to have your favorite ghost story ready for Spooky Tales around the campfire !!! 🔥

If you are a Yonkers member and need a boat, check with Lee Reiser, 914-374-7954.

ACA Camp Update

The Camp Commitee is sad to say that the Palisades Interstate Parks Commission (PIPC) has informed us that the ACA Camp will not be opening on June 1st.

We will remain closed until further notice. PIPC has told us they are working towards getting the camps open as soon as they believe it is safe. We will update everyone as soon as this changes.

Remember – As long as the Camp is closed, no one is allowed to enter camp whether by vehicle or on foot.

Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.

Hoping to see you in camp very soon.

All the Camp Committee.

Come join us for fellowship with your friends and neighbors and paddling on the waters of New York City! The Public Paddles let NBBC do what we do best: fulfill our mission to enable access to the waterways of New York City for our local community. We’ll have canoe tours with views of Manhattan, tasty beverages and snacks on hand, and friends and neighbors gathering together on the shores of Newtown Creek.

No matter where you live, NBBC is your community boat club. Come join us to start up another great season of
