Schools and youth groups
Southmere Boating Centre has been teaching sailing, kayaking and canoeing to schools, colleges and youth groups for almost forty years.
Many schools, colleges and youth groups come to the Centre purely for fun as they feel that learning to kayak, canoe or sail is hugely enjoyable and a tremendous opportunity for young people to gain new skills.
Additionally we can offer activities suitable for schools’ key stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 commitments and teach kayaking and canoeing as “outdoor and adventurous activity” elements of BTEC, GCSE and A level PE courses.
The centre is
inspected and licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA)*, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and British Canoeing (BC) and all our activities
conform to these governing bodies’ safety standards.(*Southmere
