Why not join other Scouts and Explorers Scouts at Longridge on the Thames for an exciting weekend on and off the water. You will camp on the banks of the river Thames. During the weekend you will be coached in Dragon Boats, Kayaks and Canoes and then on the Sunday embark on a trip along part of the river including 3 exciting weir drops. In addition to the paddling you will also climb as a team to the top of the 13 meter Jacobs Ladder. The final adventure involves racing round the water pool in Giant Water Orbs.

Scouts attending the weekend will qualify for key elements of both their Outdoor Challenge award & Adventure Challenge whilst completion of the river trip will gain Scouts their Scout Paddlesports Badge.

The residential weekend will be preceded by an evening pool session on Sunday 1st June at Hatch End Pool. The cost for the pool session and weekend including catering, camp fees and all instruction will be £65. Participants will need to supply their own tents & adult supervision when not on the water. Non-participating leaders will be charged £20 (includes catering and camping fees) and will be expected to help run the evening activities.

There are 48 places available so if you or your group are interested please contact me for more information at the address below.
