Summer Kayak Courses – Level 2 Kayak Skills

This course aims to give participants a memorable paddling experience in a fun and safe environment however aims to concentrate more on skills progression. During the week Instructors will cover the syllabus for the Level 2 Kayak Skills award and will include an optional assessment. This course would be ideal for those who have already completed a foundation camp or Level 1 Skills.


Camps will be over five days from Monday through to Friday . They are open to young people between the ages of 12 and 16 years of age and each camp is limited to a maximum of 12 places.

Camps will run in the afternoons from 14.00 until 16.30

Students will be supplied with all technical equipment needed such as a buoyancy aid or personal flotation device (pfd), helmet and cagoule or windproof jacket however as Kayaking is a wet sport there is a real possibility course participants will get wet during the sessions so each participant is advised to bring with them the following personal gear. The Centre can supply wetsuits but in order to minimise we would recommend that participants bring their own if they have one.

What to bring –

  • Towel
  • Swimwear
  • Thermal top or t-shirt
  • Suitable footwear – bootees or an old pair of runners
  • Sense of adventure and a smile
