These camps aim to give participants a memorable paddling experience in a fun and safe environment whilst giving a good foundation in paddlesport. The camps will give participants the opportunity to engage in the Canoeing Ireland Good 2 Go Award, which has a strong emphasis on Water Confidence & Safety, as well as developing a good relationship between participants and the Environment in a fun and Adventurous Learning style in which their paddle sport experience will take place!
Camps will be over five days from Monday through to Friday . They are open to young people between the ages of 10 and 16 years of age and each camp is limited to a maximum of 12 places.

*Week 7 falls on a bank holiday and will only be a 4 day camp
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 –
Thermal top or t-shirt
Suitable footwear – bootees or an old pair of runners
