Categories: ,


This training course is the second stage of our kids kayaking course and is for those that have completed there stage 1 kayaking booklet.

As part of our stage 2 kids kayaking course, participants will be developing their skills of kayaking even further, working towards being a completely independent kayaker on sheltered water, as well as playing games and going on journeys to put their newly developed skills into practice! The core of all our courses is sharing our passion for kayaking, having fun and learning along the way!

At the start of this kids kayaking course you will gain a booklet showing you the skills that they will start working through. Completing stage 2 of our kayaking course will mean you are well on the way to complete the Paddle UK Explore Award. Due to how much content there is in the Explore Award this is split between stage 2 and 3 completing stage 3 would mean you have gained all the skills necessary to be completely independent and be at Explore Award level. Explore 1 is the start of that journey.

As this is a training course, participants may need to take part more than once to achieve a solid grasp of the skills required for our stage 2 course and so be well on the way to be completely independent paddlers.
