Fun and exciting,
school holiday activities for children aged 8 to 16.

The activities are fun for kids and something different for them to do.  All session are open to all abilities from beginners to those with some experience and even those just wanting to have a go and see if they want to do more.

Canoeing, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing activities are available throughout the school summer holidays.

We provide all equipment, including wet suits, buoyancy aids and cagoules.

All kids need to bring is a swimsuit, trainers that they don’t mind getting wet and a towel.

So why not give them a treat this summer.
