What to bring

We supply all the kayaking gear. What you need to bring is suitable clothing for under the wetsuit, Shorts/Swimming gear, warm fleece/hoodie or thermal that can get wet and also old runners and a towel. If you have your own wet gear you are welcome to bring that.

Don’t bring any of your good stuff!  It’s a busy half day so you’ll need a packed lunch with lots of snacks, plenty to drink to keep yourself hydrated throughout.

All young people must be signed in and out of the camp everyday by a parent or guardian,
