Community Outreach

Lincoln Park Boat Club engages in community outreach to share the joys, benefits, and challenges of a variety of water sports: rowing, kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding.

We are privileged to offer young people, athletes with adaptive needs, and all others within the Chicago community, the opportunity to learn and practice these skills within the unique protective environment of the Lincoln Park Lagoon.

Community Programming

In our 2019 season, more than 150 kids and teens were able to enjoy water sports through our high school and middle school teams, as well as the many outreach events LPBC hosts throughout the year, including:

Camp Sign Crew – a partnership with the Chicago Park District to introduce deaf and hard of hearing kids and teens to water sports

Open Boats – a partnership with the Chicago Park District to introduce Chicago youth to water sports

Participation Grants – for our Middle School and High School teams. Financial support is also available for adults, reach out to president@lpboatclub.org to learn more and see if you qualify.

Thank you for your support of LPBC and our surrounding community!
