Canoeing for primary children

Canoeing is a great way to get on the water and go for an adventure. Canoes are stable, versatile and fun. Your canoe will go where you take it so you will have to experiment and learn which paddle strokes work best. You will also need to communicate with your friends in your canoe so you are all paddling to the same plan! If you can learn to control your canoe then together you and your team mates can head off for an exciting journey of discovery (with a few really fun games thrown in along the way!).

Canoeing for secondary

These boats were invented to journey and that’s just what you will do.  Learn the strokes, learn to understand the water and – most importantly – learn to communicate with your canoeing partner (There will normally be 2 of you in the canoe). You may start the day as just people in a canoe but you will end it as a team with a shared adventure.

Canoeing for post 16

A canoe is a boat in which you kneel, sit or stand and use a paddle with a single blade. These are boats whose origins are in travel and transport, and that makes them ideal for journeys on water. They are often paddled in tandem (2 people in 1 canoe) but they can be paddled solo or even rafted together for stability with 4 or more people to a raft. It is both a welcoming and easy-going environment and one that can be full of challenge. It can provide a slow, considered journey or one that is action packed and exciting. A canoe allows those paddling it to connect with the environment in a unique way. It also allows them to connect with their team mates in a very real way. Effective communication and experiential learning are only the beginning of what can be achieved through learning to canoe.
