American Canoe Assoc. Insurance

Since paddling can be considered an inherently dangerous activity, due consideration to liability issues must be a priority. Insurance coverage is essential. POWR facilitates an insurance program in conjunction with the American Canoe Association (ACA) to make insurance available to organizers of recreational sojourns and on-water volunteer cleanups. Organizers are also encouraged to check if additional coverage is needed for landowners and special activities and that all organizing committee partners are insured. If using an outfitter with existing coverage, make sure to purchase any additional coverage that is not available under the outfitter’s policy.

There have been several changes to the ACA/POWR insurance program for 2023. In order to apply for the POWR – ACA Insurance coverage, please contact Angela Vitkoski at to discuss. 


Please note: The ACA has increased it’s rates to $10 per person for the ACA Membership Fee. Please keep this in mind when planning your Sojourn. 

If you are using the POWR ACA insurance for your event, all participants must sign either an adult or minor waiver in order to participate. Please download waivers here:
