Kids Kayak Club
Time & Location
About the event
Our Kayak club is tailored for children aged 7-15 yrs, split into 3 age groups it's designed to be fun and exciting as well as promoting a physical and mental state of well being.
Length: 2 hours
Days: Saturdays - term time
Included: Kayak, paddle, bouyancy aid and helmet.
Our Kayak clubs are great for children whether they need to expend some extra energy, get active in a fun way, build up their confidence and independence or simply need to get outside more.
Our club has a lot of learning built in, by attending regularly they will go from learning how to get in and out of a boat safely to moving the kayak efficiently and being confident in their abilities to participate in water games and club journeys.
For those who would like to, they can work their way through the 3 levels of British Canoeing Paddle awards, this is not compulsory but is a great way to celebrate their progress. For each level they complete they will receive a certificate.
There's lots of ways to use their time on the water, the Scouts and Guides have a Paddle sports badge, kayaking can be used a the physical for D of E and GCSE PE, even Blue Peter has a sports badge!
Important notes: All participants should bring a full change of clothes including shoes and towel, as there's always a chance of getting wet when kayaking. We will inform parents the week before if we intend to run a wet session. Please be aware there are no shower facilities on site, changing will be in the shared cubicle toilets and so it is best that participants arrive in the clothes and shoes they wish to paddle in.
