Volunteer and help make a difference
Throughout the year, we have numerous volunteer opportunities where YOU can participate in conservation, river access and river cleanups, lead a river cruise or assist as a sweep, help at the CW tent at river festivals, or just simply spread the good word about CW events such as instruction classes, Spring/Fall Dinner, Training Camp to your friends and family... or even the media!
By donating, you are helping CW achieve its mission of providing quality whitewater instruction, safety courses, conservation/river access involvement, operational costs, and so much more. Plus, any contribution above and beyond your annual dues and instructor and event fees are 100% tax deductible.
Here's your chance to help shape the future of CW! Our club functions due to the efforts of volunteers. If you have ideas on how our club could be better, there could be a place for you on the Board of Directors.
Colorado Whitewater is one of the largest and oldest whitewater clubs in the country. Become an advertising sponsor or donate in-kind gifts of products, time, or services for raffles and giveaways at our events.
