About the Kayaking course

Working with Bear Creek Adventures, we are running a British Canoeing Paddle Discover Award kayaking course for ages 10-12 and 13-15 in September 2023 at our venue based at The Vine Inn, Kinver. Your child will be taught how to kayak and will develop an understanding of the factors which affect their paddling; developing their decision making and practical skills, giving them confidence on the water. The course is being run by Monty, the owner of River Severn Canoes who is a fully qualified, experienced kayaker, teacher & is DBS Checked. There are 12 places on each session. 

The BC Paddle Discover Award takes you on the steps to becoming an independent paddler, for a fun and safe time on the water.
