Four fun paddlesports camps for kids, spread over two weeks in August. Each camp runs Mon-Fri, choose morning or afternoon sessions. Lots of different adventurous paddle-sport activities throughout each week. With quality coaching and learning through fun "games with aims", led by our friendly, experienced and qualified coaches who have a genuine passion for canoeing, outdoor education and child development. Summer camps and outdoor activities are where kids have some of the best formative experiences of their young lives while having fun and making new best friends.
No previous paddling experience is required. These courses are great for water confidence and no swimming ability is required. Our coaches will always be in direct supervision of the activities and buoyancy aids will be properly fitted and checked for everyone.
Participants will have the option to complete the National Governing Body Certificated Personal Performance Awards.
Erne paddlers has a fantastic club ethos of everyone helping and supporting each other. We encourage a growth mindset, personal development and building resilience through overcoming well managed challenges with positive feedback. A wide range of fun and challenging canoeing activities will be on offer including open canoe trips, sit-on-top kayaks, water polo, stand up paddle boards, journeys, games, skills and more.
Participant numbers are strictly limited for quality and safety

We will provide all paddlesport and safety equipment you need; kayaks/canoes, etc, paddles, buoyancy aids and helmets.
The only thing we can't supply is your personal paddling wear.
For this course, normal outdoor clothes suitable for the prevailing weather (tracksuit, fleeces or walking clothes and waterproofs, including shoes to get wet) are perfectly fine. If you have a wetsuit, that's great, please feel free to wear it, but it is not necessary for these summer sessions.
A full set of dry clothes including shoes and a towel are essential to bring for your comfort and safety.
Lakeland Forum facilities will be available where permitted, depending on restrictions.
Please arrive ready to go paddling or change at your car as many paddlers do. A changing towel and a mat to stand on make this a much easier and more discrete process, or a large bin liner to sit on on the way home in your paddling kit works well too.
