May 25th – 2nd June marks National Go Canoeing week. This is a national event to get more people out kayaking and canoeing. The Go Canoeing campaign is part of British Canoeing and supports their goal of getting more people active and safe in or on a paddle craft. Their aim this year is to try and get over 10,000 people out on the water during the week.
There are events being held all over the country from beginner level up to experienced and hardened paddlers. You can see a list of the full events here.
There are lots of places across the country where you can take to the water, either as a lesson or as a self-run canoe hire.
Here at Skern Lodge, we have two sessions running on our adventure day programme during the May Half Term. You can join others on these sessions or a family or small group can arrange their own private booking during the week.
Go Canoeing have also created some great canoeing tips, you can read some of them here. If your first canoeing session was with Skern Lodge, we would love to hear if that inspired you to take your canoeing further. You can either send us a message via facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Go on let’s see you out on the water and lets help reach that 10,000!
