Join The Kayak Coach for this one-hour family kayaking experience, designed for children from 8 years up and accompanying parents/adults. It’s a good way to exercise and experience that sense of adventure in the heart of the countryside.

During the lesson, you can expect to learn the basics of paddling and controlling your boat, general safety, and loads of fun! The entire session takes place on a small, safe and sheltered river within the grounds of the festival. Once the basics are mastered, you’ll head off on an adventure along the river to explore and participate in games and challenges to put your new kayaking skills to the test.

What will it cover?

  • Safety Considerations
  • Basic paddling – forwards & backwards
  • Turning
  • Plenty of fun and games

Who’s it for?

No previous experience needed, just a healthy sense of adventure! If you don’t mind getting wet and want to have fun then this is for you.

What you’ll need:

We supply all the safety equipment you’ll require. Bring along a wetsuit or warm layers to paddle in, fleece material and wool are best. You’ll also need a bottle of something to drink, and sun-cream if it’s a hot day.
