Come and join one of our DofE Open canoeing expeditions. These courses are ideal if you need to join an expedition team to complete your expedition.
Your training will be comprehensive. You'll spend time on a sheltered lake where you'll practice paddle strokes and other canoe handling techniques. Your water emergency procedures will be well practiced before you head out on expedition.
There are lots of 'hard' skills to cover but more importantly you'll be developing your interpersonal skills and new communication techniques. It's the 'team' that will make your expedition a success or failure. A strong and cohesive team will overcome any lack of technical skills.
Meet Your Expedition Team
We’ll make it easy for you to meet everyone before the expedition so you can set your expedition aim, start planning and complete route cards. You’ll be a team before you even set foot on the hills!
Expedition Supervisors, Instructors and Assessors.
Our staff are friendly and enthusiastic, and most have experienced the Duke of Edinburgh scheme as young people so understand the challenge ahead of you.
Choose Your Own Date and Location
If you have a group of at least 4 people we may be able to run a bespoke expedition on a date and location that suits you. The next step is to give us a call or drop us an email with your details.
