Recreational Membership


If you are looking for a fun way to enjoy Lake Lanier, LCKC’s Recreational Membership is a great deal, with 4 plans to choose from.



Adult Recreational Paddle Group

Adult Recreational Paddle Group

Our Adult Recreation Group Paddles meet once a week and are guided by our Recreational Coordinator in a safety boat. At $50 per month you can use our boats and gear with no experience necessary.

If you have your own kayak and gear, this membership is only $40 per month.


Individual Recreation/Family Recreation Membership

Want to paddle more on your own? Then our Individual and Family Recreational Memberships allow just that; time to chill on your time! Individual Memberships run $200 per year and our Family Membership (family up to 4) is $320. We also offer boat storage for an additional $120 a year.

You will benefit from:

  • Access to our recreational boats during open hours along with usage of our paddles and life jackets
  • Moonlight paddle, Sunset paddle and Fall Leaf Color Paddle are half off. These paddles are led by a professional coach to ensure safety
  • Discounts on summer day camp
  • And, if you have your own kayak, canoe, or SUP, you can store it in the LCKC boathouse for an additional $120 per year. 

Youth Recreational Program

LCKC’s Youth Recreational Program offers children ages 9-17 a way to enjoy paddling in a non-competitive format. Participants use recreational canoes and kayaks. They also have other scheduled events beyond the Monday and Friday late afternoon paddling outings. Choose between twice a week or one day a week. All equipment is included. A two day program is $80 a month. One day program is $60 a month.

Homeschool Recreational Program

Our Homeschool Recreational Program offers those in homeschool a mid-day break on Mondays to enjoy time on the water in a non-competitive environment. Similar in format and boat usage as the Youth Recreational, homeschool will also have additional events beyond the paddle outings.

Fees for the Homeschool Rec program are only $60 per month.


LCKC Summer PaddleCamp

Each summer, LCKC hosts several 1-week sessions of summer paddlecamp from 9:00am – Noon. Designed for kids ages 8 – 15, campers are introduced to the basics of kayak, canoe and dragon boat in a safe and fun environment.   Campers will also have the opportunity to participate in other activities.

Many of the athletes on our youth Sprint Team, and some non-competitive youth in our Recreational program, started out as campers who quickly learned to love canoeing and kayaking on Lake Lanier.
