We spent a lot of our childhoods playing in lakes, now we offer the same opportunity with supervision and coaching, really allowing a young generation to become very skilled quickly in a range of water sports.
Throughout the school holidays we run sets of individual days and 2 day camps for anyone 8 years old and up, we normally run these back to back to allow joining them together for extended experiences.
As well as these pre-set dates, with enough notice, we can run these any time mid week as we only require a minimum of two participants.
Previously our camps have been based around British Canoeing courses so that within all the playing the kids achieved a meaningful qualification. Following from this we have now introduced our survival skills and snorkelling day, while not following a syllabus this day is built around problem solving and life skills.
