The SEBAGO CANOE CLUB is in Paerdegat Basin Park in Brooklyn, New York, a short paddle from the 16,000 acre expanse of Jamaica Bay. The Bay is part of Gateway National Recreational Area and has miles of open water with salt marshes, islands, beaches, and a famous wildlife refuge. It is common for boaters to see Oystercatchers and Black Skimmers flying over the water while Snowy Egrets and Great Blue Herons patrol the shoreline. Sebago, founded in 1933, is one of the oldest canoe clubs in the Northeast and our clubhouse stands on an acre of land that was once a summer encampment of the Canarsie Indians. Our canoe club was originally based on Lake Sebago in Harriman State Park where we continue to maintain rustic cabin facilities as part of the American Canoe Association camp. Sebago Canoe Club is open year round to its membership and by appointment to those interested in membership. We welcome anyone interested in the wide range of human powered boating.
