The accredited British Canoeing Paddlepower days introduce children to a variety of paddlecraft and will help develop their paddling skills.

What is it?

Learning a new skill is a lot of fun and can create a real sense of accomplishment in a childs mind.  Paddlepower is an exciting scheme that has been designed to meet the needs of young people.

Its colourful and youth centred approach aims to provide children a progression and reward pathway, while introducing them to all aspects of the sport – both competitive and adventurous.

Woodmill offers the following Paddlepower levels:

1 )Paddlepower Start

An entry level award suitable for taster sessions or as part of a series of sessions.

2) Paddlepower Passport

Four progressive levels based on twenty four topics which can be grouped into safety awareness, paddling skills, varied experiences and supporting knowledge.  The award is equivalent to the British Canoeing One Star award.

3) Paddlepower Discover

This follows on from Passport with a further four levels to take the young paddler to equivalent of the British Canoeing Two Star standard.

Young people getting involved in this scheme will be given their passport when they sign up.

 

When is it?

Our Paddlepower days run on Tuesdays and Thursdays during all school holidays throughout the year. Programmes start at 09:00 and finish at 16:30.

 

Who is it for?

Paddlepower days are great for 8 – 16 years.  Children are normally organised into age groupings to ensure good group dynamics and so that the activity difficulty is pitched at the right level.

 

How much is it?

£37 per child.

We accept child care vouchers.

All activities need to be booked in advance. Children require a completed participation consent form, which can be completed on arrival or downloaded from our website.
