This one day course is suitable for families looking for more than a taster session and is a full day on our private lakes near Dartmoor. Suitable for the complete novice, it’s an ideal way for the family to safely learn all the basics of paddling. There will be the option to try a bit of kayaking and canoeing during the day finishing with a build your own raft session, and see who gets wet in the rafting challenge.

You will need to bring swimwear, old training shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and a towel. You will be at the lake all day, so bring along food and water for the family.

Next running at Easter 2020, unless you have a group of 4 or more. Suitable for ages 8+ (5 – 7 year olds can take part if accompanied by an adult).
