MINI KAYAK/CANOE COURSE FOR CHILDREN AGED 7-8

The idea is to introduce the youngsters to kayaking and open canoeing or build on skills learnt the previous year. Participants do not need to have passed the swim test (although they should be able to swim 50 metres and be confident in and around river water), but MUST have a well fitting buoyancy aid and have a pair of soft shoes suitable for getting wet.

We advise warm clothing and a windproof jacket as it gets very cold, even in the summer when the sun goes down, especially when you are wet.

Please bring a towel and a change of clothes.
