Adventure Kayak Camps 2020

Due to Coronavirus outbreak we will be running a revised Summer Camp programme.

The camps are aimed at young people between the ages of 10 and 16 and will run during July and August

The main aims of the camps are:

  • To introduce young people to a range of paddle sports in a safe and fun environment.
  • To have fun, learn a variety of paddle sports and gain basic skill levels
  • To promote team building and water safety awareness among young people.
  • To make new friends
  • Assessment for Canoeing Ireland Skills Award certificates in Kayaking and Sit on Tops (SoT) are available

Activities

During the week participants will be introduced to a mix of paddle sports including Kayaking, Canoeing and Sit-on-Tops. Workshops in competitive disciplines such as Slalom, Polo, and Wildwater can be included. Students will get to experience short river trips and learn about paddle fitness.

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 snack, plenty to drink to keep yourself hydrated throughout.

Children must be signed in and out of the camp every day by a parent or guardian. Children are not allowed 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.
