YCKC has moved!
  
October 2013, YCKC's buildings were moved by the York Lake Regional Park Authority closer to the Cadet Club. Please keep checking YCKC website or contact YCKC for updated directions to new location.
 
There's lots of work left to be done to set YCKC up for the new year! Volunteer to help make this year's programs successful!
 
Please note that as of July 9th, we still don't have phone at the clubhouse hooked up.

When paddling at YCKC,
you should bring:
      • Hat
      • Towel
      • Smiles
      • Sunscreen
      • Mosquito Repellent
      • A Change of Clothes

 

DO YOU HAVE . . .

  • A fishing boat you’re not using?  
  • Canadian Tire dollars that you forget to use when you get to the store?

If YES, then recycle by passing them on to YCKC!  We’re in need of a second safety boat on the lake, a sledge hammer, and Canadian Tire dollars for purchasing boat repair materials.

Bring your donation to YCKC during session times OR email/phone and we’ll set up a time to come pick them up.

Thanks in advance for donating to YCKC, a non-profit club serving the people of Yorkton and district!
