Participating in our volunteer opportunities ensures that the Carleton Place Canoe Club continues to offer quality programs that are affordable to the community. These opportunities also bring our member families together to build lasting friendships and foster a sense of community within Carleton Place. As noted in registration, the club has asked all "full-summer" families to commit to assisting and participating with Club events, fundraising opportunities and more. Each member family is expected to commit 10 volunteer hours. Member families may choose to opt out of volunteer commitment in exchange for a volunteer fee ($100) charged upon member registration.

Carleton Place Canoe Club Volunteer Policy 2019

All full summer Carleton Place Canoe Club program members will be required to submit a volunteer cheque, or credit/debit deposit in the amount of $100.  A cheque/deposit must be submitted at time of registration, or dropped off to the canoe club office/mailbox with one week of registration.  

Each member family is required to complete a minimum of 10 volunteer hours (per family) before August 31st of the year of programming. Upon completion of these hours, the CPCC will either return the $100 deposit, or destroy the volunteer cheque associated with the appropriate member account. Volunteer hours can be completed through the following types of events/tasks:

· CPCC Home Regatta

· Various EOD Regattas

· Club clean-ups

· Club hosted events (social, fundraising, etc.)

· Volunteer board of directors

· Errands 

Volunteer sign-up opportunities will be posting in early Spring. Members can also opt-out of volunteering by submitting a $100 payment in full a minimum of two weeks prior to program start date.
