Hui Wa'a Kaukahi

Membership Information and Applications

Thank you for considering joining Hui Wa'a Kaukahi Kayak Club of Hawai'i. We don't yet have a way of processing applications online, but below you will find some printable forms that can be mailed in or brought to one of our General Meetings.

Hui Wa'a is proud to be a Paddle America Club (PAC), meaning we are under the aegis of the American Canoe Association (ACA), and as such, are required to ensure, for reasons of insurance, that all our individual members are also members of the national ACA, a separate organization. Below you will see the HWK application as well as two ACA applications (adult & minor). BOTH HWK and ACA forms must be submitted for new applicants. To make the process a little less onerous, HWK extends a discount on its dues for first-time joiners, to get you to join both groups at one time. If you are already an ACA member, you do not need both forms, just include your ACA member number on the HWK app. Renewals of ACA memberships will be handled by ACA directly, not by this Club. There is a brochure explaining what the ACA is all about here.

For example, the yearly dues for a single adult membership(s) are:

Individual HWK $24
Adult ACA $40
New Member Discount $2
Total $62

In addition, the other options that are offered are:

  • Hui Wa'a Kaukahi (HWK) Membership Application
  • American Canoe Association ® (ACA) Adult's Application
  • American Canoe Association ® (ACA) Minor's Application
  • Completed applications can be mailed with payment to: Membership, PO Box 11588, Honolulu, HI, 96828, or brought to any General meeting (the next scheduled meeting is announced here)
