Outdoor Activities at TrekCo

Canoeing and Kayaking

Canoeing (bigger boats) and kayaking (individual boats) are very popular on our school residentials and outdoor activity days. Our fully qualified British Canoe Union instructors will introduce you to the basics of this exciting sport. You get a buoyancy aid and there’s no need to be able to swim as long as you are happy being in the water. We’ll practise in a shallow area where if you fall out, you can just stand up and get back in! Then it’s off for a short trip out into the lake where you can learn a little more.

Can you keep your feet off the ground as you traverse a narrow passage or get your whole group to balance on top of a boulder? As your teamwork grows in organisation and confidence prepare yourselves for the ‘Black Hole of Death!’ (no actual death involved!)
