Have fun in the water while learning how to canoe
Canoeing is a great fun activity that encompasses many aspects of canoe sport, beach games and pier jumping, and we might even have a belly flop competition at the end! The session can be used as part of an educational programme and is even on the national curriculum for P.E. Paddling skills can be taught to high levels and certificates can also be awarded.
The aim of the canoeing session is to have fun while learning a new skill. Basic paddling techniques are taught as well as what to do in the event of a capsize, how to be rescued and what to look out for. The whole session can be used to look at self reliance, motivation, participation and encouragement.
