What to bring

We supply all the kayaking gear. What you need to bring is appropriate clothing for under the wetsuit, Shorts/Swimming gear, warm fleece/hoodie or thermal that can get wet and also old runners and a towel.

Don’t bring any of your good stuff!  It’s a busy half day so you’ll need a packed lunch with lots of snacks, plenty to drink to keep yourself hydrated throughout.

Children must be signed in and out of the camp everyday by a parent or guardian, we do not allow children to “come and go” by themselves.

Please note that places on the camps are limited and will be awarded on a first come first served basis, hence early booking is advised.  Book your place before the 20th March 2014 and get 10 percent discount on your booking.
