"When getting afloat at SWAC, your school trip will help develop knowledge, understanding, resilience, teamwork and a sense of pride in undertaking new challenges. Our RYA and Ofsted aligned outcomes mean that we passionately believe that opportunities as part of children's education can enhance their progress and learning back in the classroom"
Jenni - Schools Instructor
We’ve been offering a variety of educational programmes for decades, and each and every booking is fully tailored to the needs of the school, it’s students and the desired outcomes.
Our offering includes watersport activity sessions. The local River is extremely safe and offers a fantastic introduction to outdoor education afloat for children of all ages, from all backgrounds.
If it’s a classic reward trip you’re looking for, we can certainly make it a memorable one with our broad range of multi-activity propositions.
Children are usually grouped (depending on their age, experience etc) and rotate between incredible activities such as Raft Building, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Sailing and Water Fun games.
With experience in accommodating groups of up to 90 onsite at any one time, you don’t need to worry about separate day trips for each year group. Trips can be booked by the half or full day.
Every day trip comes with a no-obligation pre-visit to understand the site layout, equipment and see our incredible team of instructors in action.
Ditch the dorms – and really discover the great outdoors!
Enjoy a multi-day programme of watersports at SWAC – with evenings camping just down the road, at our sister venue.
Over multiple days, students will enjoy either a variety of multi activities, over three or four short and snappy sessions or work towards their RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stages in groups of 6. These will include, Sailing, Powerboating, Stand Up Paddleboarding and Water Confidence games (and missions!)
Hidden within the private grounds of our sister venue, Woodmill Outdoor Activities Centre is easily accessed by all major transport routes, our dedicated camping village can sleep groups of most sizes. We think it’s the the best base for those visiting us for their residential school adventures and is only a short bus ride away from SWAC each morning and evening.
