The emphasis with canoeing is on communication and quick decision making between the two or three paddlers. You will learn basic strokes, boat handling, and safety skills. Once paddling and manoeuvring skills have been mastered, the group will be encouraged to practice their skills through a series of games and scenarios. The objective of our canoeing activity is to teach participants how to enjoy canoeing correctly and safely while having fun. Students will also discover the consequences of good communication .
Our outdoor range is set up to instruct students on the basics of archery.

Initiatives and Challenges
Unless the team or individual is not pushed outside of their comfort zone then the learning’s from an initiative or challenge activity will be diminished. There is a tipping point however when an initiative or challenge can become a negative experience. Our Instructors are experienced in achieving this fine balance. We find that the reward, sense of achievement, sense of self-worth is directly proportional to the size of the challenge overcome and amount of initiative it took. Our briefs and de-briefs make sure you get the most out of the activity. We have too many activities to list here, so please talk to us about your requirements.

Most activities can take place in light rain and showers. With persistent hard rain we will switch to our wet weather alternatives, utilising our under cover areas.
