Water Activities

Aldwark is ideal for water-based activities and residential training courses, or as a base for other activities.

Canoeing and Kayaking
A crew of volunteers run canoe and kayak sessions over weekends and evenings. Our enthusiastic team love to entertain the young ones, with games and river trips, along with teaching useful paddle strokes for the young people to learn and develop themselves, and also become more confident in themselves on the water.  Our team have a wealth of experience, and a variety of water craft to utilise so are able to deliver fun on the water to BCU 1 star or BCU Paddlepower Passport.

Rafting is another popular activity at our centre, blending traditional Scouting skills, teamwork, and communication all together in one activity session. Once the raft is built by the group we put it into testing on water… will your raft sink or swim? Good luck and try not to get too wet!
