Paddling

We have over 20 kayaks and canoes to suit all abilities and conditions. Our leaders are competent paddlers and regularly take to the water.

We are always keen to take more Scouts out in our kayaks, but this means we need more leaders and assistants with paddle skills and permits. If you already paddle and have a BCA Qualification, or would be interested in learning to paddle, please contact our leaders and we will arrange a training and assessment session for you to become a skills assistant.

British Canoeing, formerly known as the British Canoe Union is a national governing body for canoeing in the United Kingdom. Established in 1936 as the British Canoe Union, in 2000 it federalised to become the umbrella organisation for the home nation associations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
